This book examines a number of facets of contemporary culture and sets forth what thoughtful Christians have been and should be thinking about each one.
Written in honor of Carl F.H. Henry on the occasion of his eightieth birthday, the essays in God and Culture are on these topics and by these contributors:
-hermeneutics Kevin J. Vanhoozer

Each of these authors has demonstrated a profound interest in thinking "Christianly" about his subject. Some of the essays scan the ways previous Christians have tried to evaluate
each cultural "slice"; all of them offer some guidance regarding what Christians need to
bear in mind as our culture rushes on.
Some contributors adopt the well-known grid of H. Richard Niebuhr in his classic Christ and Culture; others cut fresh paths. The aim throughout is to foster fidelity to Christ and his gospel while encouraging a comprehensive Christian outlook on our rapidly changing world.
