Product Description

Where do we stand? inquires into the nature of our secularist, materialistic civilization and offers a thoughtful Christian response. Blamires focuses on point of antagonism between the Christian faith and the assumptions of modernity. He notes, by contrast, the movements both inside and outside the Church---some plainly materialistic and self-indulgent, others well-intentioned and altrustic---which tend to undermine distinctively Christian action. He reminds Christians that the challenge today is one Christians have always faced: "The conflict between the Church and the World, between Christ and Caesar, will not go away and cannot be resolved by shuttle diplomacy, however patient and protracted. The Christian's vocation is always to be a citizen of another kingdom and therefore to live uneasily in the kingdom of this world."

Harry Blamires started writing in the late 1940s at the encouragement of his friend, C.S. Lewis, his tutor at Oxford. Well known as a theologian, literary critic, and novelist, Blamires served as head of the English department at King Alfreds College in Winchester, England. He is well-known for his classic books The Christian Mind and On Christian Truth. His most recent book is The Post Christian Mind: Exposing Its Destructive Agenda (1999).
