    Product Description

    Where is Western culture going? What should Christians think about it? Those who already ask these questions often come up with confused answers. Those who do not are, arguably, living in a fool's paradise (or a fool's hell.) In this second edition of Subversive Christianity, Brian Walsh returns to the themes of cultural discernment that he unpacked more than twenty years ago. In a new Postscript, Walsh revisits Francis Fukuyama, Bruce Cockburn, and the prophet Jeremiah and asks, Where are we now? In light of 9/11 and the world economic crisis of 2008, how do we discern the times, and what does that discernment tell us about the calling of the church? ""Brian Walsh tackles the central issues head on in this powerful little book. He is well-equipped to do so. On the one hand, he has studied contemporary culture--and a wide range of Christian discussions of it--in great depth. We are here given, in easily accessible form, the fruits of many years of patient academic work. He has also drunk deeply from biblical theology, and provides clear and creative exegesis of several passages in a way which breathes new life into them. Walsh brings together the Bible and the modern world in a way which is as original as it is compelling."" --From the foreword by N.T. Wright, University of St. Andrews. Brian Walsh is a Christian Reformed campus minister at the University of Toronto. He is the author of Kicking at the Darkness: Bruce Cockburn and the Christian Imagination, and coauthor of Beyond Homelessness: Christian Faith in a Culture of Displacement (with Steven Bouma-Prediger), Colossians Remixed: Subverting the Empire (with Sylvia Keesmaat), and Truth Is Stranger Than It Used to Be (with J. Richard Middleton).
