Christians want to make a difference in the world. We want to see society change for the better. We want people to know Jesus. How do we begin to do that when the world is so different?
In this book, R. C. Sproul explains the word views that make up today’s culture, from secularism to hedonism, and why Christians need to be aware of these belief systems.
The final section of the book discusses how Christians can, and should, engage in five areas of culture and society: economics, science, art, literature, and government.
R. C. Sproul is one of my favorite theologians and teachers. One reason for this is because, though he’s not an expert in all fields, he takes an interest in all areas of life where they relate to the Christian life. The main reason he is one of my favorites is because he knows how to explain. He can take a complex topic and break it down in the most understandable ways. This book is no different.
If you’re looking for a something to help you understand today’s world, I highly recommend this book.
