Should we easily retreat from tradition? should still we embody our cultural practices and mind-set? How vital is it for us to be engaged with our tradition and mind-set? How may possibly we do this with discernment and faithfulness?
William Edgar bargains a biblical theology within the mild of our modern tradition that contends that Christians may still -- and certainly, needs to -- have interaction with the encircling culture.
By exploring what Scripture has to assert concerning the position of tradition and gleaning insights from numerous theologians -- together with Abraham Kuyper, T. S. Eliot, H. Richard Niebuhr and C. S. Lewis -- Edgar contends that cultural engagement is a primary element of human life. He doesn't turn away from these passages that emphasize the excellence among Christians and the realm. but he reveals, shining throughout the biblical witness, facts that helps a powerful defence of the cultural mandate to 'be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it' (Genesis 1:28).
With readability and knowledge, Edgar argues that we're such a lot devoted to our calling as God's creatures after we perform growing culture.
