Carson on Christianity and Culture . . . Coming Soon!
Mark Dever loves D.A. Carson and so do I. In a recent post on the Together for the Gospel blog, Dever admires Carson in "Don Carson vs. Egregious Reductionisms Again." He also makes the following announcement:

Stop and thank God for the gift that Don is.

Well, now to the point of the blog. He's done it again. Don has a book coming out later this year with Eerdmans called Christ and Culture Revisited. He's obviously playing off H. Richard Niebuhr's famous title. And he spends one chapter analyzing Niebuhr's 5-fold typology for how Christ and culture relate. He turns the manuscript in this week, and the book should pop out sometime later this year.

In this book, Don interacts with everyone from Thomas Jefferson to Stanley Hauerwas. He has a great section on the central story-line of the Bible. As he says at one point in the manuscript: "much of the rest of this book can be read as a meditation on how a robust biblical theology tends to safeguard Christians against the most egregious reductionisms." Don has read not only widely, but carefully and with understanding. He expresses himself carefully, in a nuanced fashion, and yet clearly. Unlike some other academic popularizers today, Don shares his rich bibliography in a way that enables the reader to do further research if he or she wants to.

I can't wait!

Me too! This looks good and we need an updated, Protestant, scholarly view of culture.
