The Secular Saint: The Case for Evangelical Social Responsibility


The Secular Saint: A Case for Evangelical Social Responsibility by Robert E. Webber 

Recognizing the need for an evangelically oriented book to guide believers dealing with the issue of Christianity's relation to society, educator Robert Webber has developed a unique approach to this subject that gives clear solutions to the Christ-culture problem from both a biblical and historical point of view. The biblical material in 'The Secular Saint' presents the social, moral, and cultural concerns of the Judeo-Christian heritage. The historical material then shows how the church in history has either separated from its culture, identified with it, or attempted to transform it. On the basis of these three historical models, Webber argues that there is more than one way for the Christian to live in a responsible relationship with the world. This is a book of principles, not a how-to guidebook. As the author states, My purpose is not to deal with contemporary problems themselves but to give the reader the biblical and historical tools needed to understand and deal with modern issues.
