Publisher's Description

Can we realistically fight against culture?


Overview


In his great literary classic, Miguel de Cervantes gave us a wonderfully comedic picture of the legendary Don Quixote, who was a romantic in an age when Enlightenment logic was taking over the world. He was chivalrous at a time when individualism was robbing graciousness from society. He was an oddball who couldn t see or hear well and was ridiculed as an out-of-touch misfit.


But when he dreamed of doing great deeds, was he wrong? Were his exploits mere madcap, or was Cervantes trying to tell us something about ourselves? Is there a way to be a fool for Jesus that allows us to be prophetic without becoming either lost in the whirlwinds of our time or defeated into Christian isolationism? Frederica Mathewes-Green explores this in her article Loving the Storm Drenched.
