Publisher's Description

When being countercultural is our goal, we may be nearer to colluding with culture than changing it.


Overview


As Christians we are faced with an extremely difficult task: to live as holy people in a sinful and evil world. When we choose to follow biblical values, we embrace a worldview that is in opposition to that of the larger culture. But as Alan Jacobs argues in an article in BOOKS & CULTURE, there is a tendency in this contemporary age for Christians to pursue a countercultural influence as an end in itself. Jacobs believes that our first goal as Christians should be faithfulness to the gospel. If we steadfastly pursue this calling, the inevitable result will be a countercultural influence on society.


This study will ask: What are the marks of a faithful church? How do we resist the tendency to pursue counterculture change for its own sake? What does faithfulness to the gospel look like in contemporary society?
