The Way Out of Darkness: Vital Public Theology
AuthorHouse, 2008 - Broj stranica: 176
This book is about the vital leadership role that true religion must play in society in order to be relevant for the threatening challenges and in order to be true to the mission and the high calling of God in Christ in this 21st Century. To highlight this challenge, the author brings forth a most difficult and bothersome question that has evolved out of the dynamic mix of cultural diversity in, That question is: How can the Christian Americans hold on to their patriotism for America and their loyalty to Jesus Christ with uncompromising conviction, and yet, be inclusive of the growing influx of cultural diversity and religious pluralism in a high technological society? This book provides the theological foundation for validating the Christian and American heritage in America; and how this unique heritage must learn how to relate, redemptively, to cultural diversity, ecumenism, universalism and the world. The enlightening principles and practice of public theology offer a ray of light and a star of hope out of the darkness.
