SUMMARY

This accessible introduction to Christian worldview explores how Christians can live faithfully at the crossroads of Scripture and postmodern culture. Living at the Crossroads first lays out a brief summary of the biblical story and the most fundamental beliefs of Scripture. The book then tells the story of Western culture from the classical period to postmodernity. Authors Michael Goheen and Craig Bartholomew next provide an analysis of how Christians live in the tension that exists at the intersection of the biblical and cultural stories. They proceed to tease out the implications for key areas of life, such as education, scholarship, economics, politics, and church. The result is a deeply thoughtful yet approachable book that draws on the rich tradition of reformational thinking but contextualizes it to a postmodern setting. "In this book, the authors show students how to recognize and gradually understand more fully the relevance of the living Word of God for their living, working, and studying in these complex and often bewildering times. If I still had university-age children, I would be very pleased if they received their basic introduction in academics from these two trustworthy and deeply engaged Christian educators."--Bob Goudzwaard, professor emeritus, Free University of Amsterdam "The concept of 'Christian worldview,' let alone 'biblical worldview,' has more often been invoked than helpfully defined. In this stimulating, well-informed, and practical sequel to The Drama of Scripture, Goheen and Bartholomew once again demonstrate their remarkable effectiveness at articulating accessibly an understanding of Christian identity in the West that is both scripturally grounded and, notably, shaped by the Reformed intellectual tradition in its ecumenical context."--David L. Jeffrey, author of Houses of the Interpreter: Reading Scripture, Reading CultureGoheen, Michael W. is the author of 'Living at the Crossroads: An Introduction to Christian Worldview', published 2008 under ISBN 9780801031403 and ISBN 0801031400.
