In Divine Transcendence and the Culture of Change David H. Hopper explores several significant historical and cultural effects of Reformation theology. In conversation with H. Richard Niebuhr, he examines the theology of Martin Luther, Martin Bucer, John Calvin, and Francis Bacon and shows how these Reformation thinkers' recognition of God's transcendent wisdom in the cross of Christ - over and above human wisdom - ushered in an era of greater liberty and equality, deeper knowledge, and cultural progress.
Hopper's historical-theological study not only illuminates the past but also sheds light on the tumultuous present, revealing how a recaptured understanding of God's transcendence can confront the thoughtless tolerance and inward-facing spiritual consumerism of our own time and radically transform both theology and culture today.
