The tension of God’s kingdom that is now but not yet makes interacting with the world a complicated affair. If we truly believe that the gospel is an all-encompassing worldview, it should apply to every area of human existence—physical, emotional, and spiritual. Our faith must be grounded in the here and now; Jesus’ example was one of engagement with, not detachment from, the physical realm.
To help young Christians connect their faith with the rest of their lives, Lexham Press established a partnership with Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary to publish three books on Christian cultural engagement. Four leading Christian thinkers—Bruce Riley Ashford, Walter R. Strickland, Benjamin Quinn, and David W. Jones—lend their insights and scholarship point us to a reframed biblical worldview that extends throughout and engages with all of creation.
At the intersection of faith, culture, work, and economics, the Cultural Engagement Bundle equips Christians to faithfully engage with the world and glorify God in all they do.
