There is no more crucial issue facing us today than the relationship of the church and the gospel to contemporary culture. Don Carsons 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. -Tim Keller, Pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City
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 Bibles own story line and the categories of biblical theology, he clearly lays out that unifying vision. Carson acknowledges the helpfulness of Niebuhrs 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 Christ transforming 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.

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'!""

Equip to Disciple
"A valuable resource to help us think and live more consistently with Gods will."
"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."
"A fine overview and criticism of contemporary Protestant efforts to get the Christ-culture connection right."

Rev. Doyle Peyton5 Stars Out Of 5May 29, 2008Rev. Doyle PeytonHow do we live in the world but not of it? What belongs to Caesar and what belongs to God? Carson shows in his John Gillian fashion this issue is just as complex as ever in today's world, and more so, requiring balance and biblical wisdom. Preachers won't find a lot of grist for their mills but will find it a thought provoking read.
