In Christ and Culture Revisited, D. A. Carson begins by exploring the H. Richard Niebuhr's classic typology, with its five options for understanding culture. He proposes that these disparate options are in reality one still larger vision. Using the Bible's own story line and the categories of biblical theology, he attempts to work out what that unifying vision is. Carson acknowledges the helpfulness of Niebuhr's grid and other similar approaches, but warns against giving them canonical force.More than just theoretical, Christ and Culture Revisited is also designed to help Christians untangle current debates about living in the world.
