John Barber, Ph.D., in his new book, The Road from Eden, Studies in Christianity and Culture, has written a masterful 566-page work concerning Christ in culture. More culturally definitive than Augustine's, City of God, and more current than Richard Niebuhr's, Christ and Culture, Barber reveals the redemptive-cultural Christ of history.Joe, so you like this book. That's a pretty big statement about it being more "culturally definitive" than Augustine's, City of God. How do you see it in that way?
Niebuhr's name sounds like one of the higher criticism guys. Is that correct or is he one of the good guys?
I'll see if I can pick it up. Is it written very scholarly? Thank for the heads-up.
