Public Theology in Cultural Engagement offers foundational essays that theologize contemporary culture. Stephen R. Holmes explores how key biblical themes—creation, law, election, Christology, and redemption—contribute to the development of a cultural theology. He considers the importance of engaging national culture through the arts, education, the media, and politics and offers reflections on the current state of nationalism and today’s drug culture.
