Overview

In Cultural Implications of Theology: Influences of Christian Doctrine on Society, Dr. Richard S. Park seeks to demonstrate how theology makes a real difference in society and how the gospel transforms culture. Dr. Park explores the social implications of the doctrines of creation, fall, redemption, and glorification, as well as the influences that sociology, anthropology, and other sources of “secular wisdom” can have on Christian theology. He puts forth a framework for how Christians are to think biblically about culture and how they are to engage culture winsomely in their God-given, day-to-day callings.
