What does Jerusalem have to do with Athens? How should the church relate to secular society? Embracing topics such as politics, law, economics, and marriage, respected scholars urge the church to lead, not follow, contemporary culture. Their insights illuminate the role of the heavenly city within the earthly city. 133 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.
The chapters of this book offer informed perspectives on a "theology of the world," exploring the question: How does/should the church relate to the secular world? The standard dogma of the 1960s was Let the world set the agenda Such a perspective has often caused the American church merely to reflect, rather than to inform and lead, the society in which it lives. Surely, say the authors of this volume, it must be the other way around.Contributors: Robert Benne, Robert W. Jenson, Carl E. Braaten, Gilbert Meilaender, Christopher R.
