CS121 Cultural Engagement and Scripture

Darrell L. Bock

| Lexham Press | 2016

Details

How do we live together well? How do we culturally engage in the manner that’s best for everyone, considering the diversity that we live in the midst of? Dr. Darrell Bock guides you through cultural engagement and Scripture and asks Christians to analyze the cultures that they live in and the ways they structure their lives. Bock explores the rules of the game of life, what makes people produce what we produce, the ways they work the earth, the ways we generate companies, the way they produce objects, the institutions that we form, the religions that we have, the kinds of governments that we build, the businesses that function, and all the things that make for the running of life. Delve into our world that is full of cultures and distinct settings and examine the cross-cultural realities and the pluralism that we all live with as human beings.
