Product Description

Jesus calls his followers to be salt and light in a fallen world. Through the ages, believers have grappled with what form Christian cultural engagement should take. Various Christian thinkers have advocated models of engagement, and some recent models have used the discourse of the battlefield to speak of "winning the culture war." In a post-Constantinian, post-Christian culture, how are believers to live in the world without being of the world?

Throughout his ministry, David S. Dockery has persistently advocated "convictional civility" as a vision for contemporary engagement - in which witness is more important that winning, and fidelity is more effective than fighting. In this volume, respected Christian leaders honor him by presenting these essays that explore convictional civility as a lifestyle of bearing witness for Christ and of contributing to the common good. From the pulpit to the public square and from the campus to the courtroom, followers of Christ are to demonstrate Christian virtues through winsome civility and Christian values through wholehearted conviction.

Editorial Reviews

"The title of this volume perfectly reflects the commitments of the honoree: David Dockery is a man of robust theological convictions, but no less committed to discourse characterized by civility. One inevitably recalls Paul's exhortation to truth and love. The essays in this volume are diverse in character and scope; several assess Dockery's contributions. But it is the theme of the book as a whole that is compelling, for it stands athwart twin monsters of our age—anemic theological sentimentality on the one hand, and bad-tempered ignorant dogmatism on the other—and cries "Stop!" by showing a better way."
D. A. Carson
Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"For many of us in the business of Christian higher education, David Dockery has been a model for how he has combined firm evangelical convictions, broad-based ecumenical charity, and unusual academic insight. Now, as he heads northwards after very productive years at Union University, this book reveals why I am delighted as a ’Yankee evangelical’ that he has come over to help us. "

Mark Noll
Francis A. McAnany Professor of History, University of Notre Dame
