Christian Theology for a Secular Society
Singing the Lord's Song in a Strange Land
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"McKim is that rare person who stands firmly in his tradition and, at the same time, is able to appreciate what Christians from other traditions bring to the table. This stance results in a combination of decisive thinking and due consideration of positions that differ from his."
--The Bulletin, Atlantic Baptist Fellowship
"This is systematic theology written by a pastor-scholar for other pastors and thoughtful church members. . . . McKim's passion is to help us know, love, and serve God in our day. [This book] is a heartfelt plea . . . to become more counter-cultural by taking seriously the sovereign and holy God in a world increasingly secular and claiming its autonomy from God."
--John Bolt, Professor of Systematic Theology, Calvin Theological Seminary
"Equipping himself with some of the best in ancient and recent theology and scriptural study, McKim sets out to write a systematic theology which restores our confidence in the Gospel, thickens our description of the Christian faith with scriptural revelation and sound doctrine, and provides both intellectual resources and practical directions to build up the life and mission of the church in our secular context . . . "
--Douglas Harink, Professor of Theology, The King's University College
"Generally in agreement, occasionally in disagreement, I am nevertheless pleased to commend Dr. McKim's book. I hope that it will gain a wide readership. With apologetic and pastoral concerns in mind he wrestles with major Christian doctrines in such a way as to reveal their biblical roots and to show their importance for today's church. . . . Ministers who subscribe to prevalent anti-intellectualism, who resort to forced emotionalism, or vacuous 'spirituality,' or who are in thrall to materialistic-commercial models of church growth should be required to read this book--and repent."
--Alan P. F. Sell, Professor of Christian Doctrine and Philosophy of Religion (retired), United Theological College
