Christ and Culture

Publisher writes

In a message that rings as true today as it did fifty years ago, H. Richard Niebuhr speaks of Christ and culture as the two points of reference for faith and ethics and challenges a new generation of Christians to be true to Christ in a materialistic age.

Judges' and contributors' comments

Martyn Percy, arguing to demote the book to its current position: I think Niebuhr would be appalled to be above St John of the Cross.

John Saxbee: Taking a typological approach, this still topical study explores how Christian truth claims can accommodate diversity and modernity without colluding with relativism or reductionism. Whilst diverse cultural, political and religious perspectives preclude exclusivist truth claims, ‘radical monotheism’ secures their relationship to a single centre of theocentric value.
