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.
Dr. Richard S. Park is assistant professor of religion at Vanguard University, specializing in ethics and political theology. He obtained his DPhil in theology from the University of Oxford and completed two master’s degrees at Biola University, along with a bachelor’s at the University of California, Berkeley. He is founder and president of a nonprofit organization called Renaissance Forum that helps people discern and live out their God-guided callings. Dr. Park’s most recent publication is Constructing Civility: The Human Good in Christian and Islamic Political Theologies. He speaks at conferences and churches in the U.S. and abroad on topics such as calling, culture, civility, and character.
