Product Description

Called to live in the world, but not to be of it, Christians must maintain a balancing act that becomes more precarious the further our culture departs from its Judeo-Christian roots. How should members of the church interact with such a culture, especially as deeply enmeshed as most of us have become?

This award-winning book--now in paperback and with a new preface--D. A. Carson applies his masterful touch to that problem. After exploring the classic typology of culture configured by H. Richard Niebuhr in his five Christ-culture options, Carson offers an even more comprehensive paradigm for informing the Christian interaction with culture in even more critical and biblical ways. More than just theoretical however, Christ and Culture Revisited is a practical guide for helping Christians untangle current messy debates about living in an increasingly secular culture.

Publisher's Description

Called to live in the world, but not to be of it, Christians must maintain a balancing act that becomes more precarious the further our culture departs from its Judeo-Christian roots. How should members of the church interact with such a culture, especially as deeply enmeshed as most of us have become?D. A. Carson applies his masterful touch to this problem. He begins by exploring the classic typology of H. Richard Niebuhr with its five Christ-culture options. Carson proposes that these disparate options are in reality one still larger vision. Using the Bible's own story line and the categories of biblical theology, he clearly lays out that unifying vision. Carson acknowledges the helpfulness of Niebuhr's grid and similar matrices but warns against giving them canonical force.More than just theoretical, Christ and Culture Revisited is also designed practically to help Christians untangle current messy debates on living in the world. Carson emphasizes that the relation between Christ and culture is not limited to an either/or cultural paradigm -- Christ against culture or Christtransforming culture. Instead Carson offers his own paradigm in which all the categories of biblical theology must be kept in mind simultaneously to inform the Christian worldview.While many other books on culture interact with Niebuhr, none of them takes anything like the biblical-theological approach adopted here. Groundbreaking and challenging, Christ and Culture Revisited is a tour de force.

REVIEWS
Mark Dever
— Pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington D.C.
"Don Carson here writes clearly, carefully, and helpfully about the timely topic of how Christians should engage culture. Well-suited to write such a volume, Carson exposes and explodes ’egregious reductionisms' which he says too often afflict Christians. We can't reduce the relationship of Christ and culture to one model (Niebuhrian or otherwise). Reading this book has sharpened my own understanding. So buy the book you're holding. Read it. Pass it along to folks in your congregation. And reduce ’egregious reductionisms'!""
 
Tim Keller
— Pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City
"There is no more crucial issue facing us today than the relationship of the church and the gospel to contemporary culture. Don Carson's treatment of this issue is the most balanced one out there. Rather than grinding an ax or pushing his own paradigm, he listens carefully to the Scripture and brings us in the end to a sophisticated simplicity about these matters. I highly recommend this book.""
 
Christianity Today
"Make room on the shelf for this penetrating book by Carson. . . Carson engages with a stunning range of writers and texts. (Five Stars). "

Equip to Disciple
"A valuable resource to help us think and live more consistently with God’s will."
 
Worship
"This work is a cogently argued exploration of an evangelical Christian approach to the relationship of church and U.S. society. . . . A valuable contribution to the national discussion in the United States of ’public theology’."
 
First Things
"A fine overview and criticism of contemporary Protestant efforts to get the Christ-culture connection right."
