Christian Theology for a Secular Society: Singing the Lord’s Song in a Strange Land
Although Western societies still affirm vague beliefs in God and Christian beliefs, these affirmations have little to do with how daily life is lived. Instead, life is lived largely without reference to God and Christians must live out their faith as a minority within our secularized and institutionalized culture. Mark McKim sets out to “do” theology in this context, explaining Christian doctrines to a secular culture-and in a way that will gain a hearing. All the major Christian doctrines are examined, engaging some of the best of contemporary and historical Christian thinkers. Throughout, McKim asks the “So what?” question as he relates Christian teachings to a secular society and to what is actually happening in the local church. His goal is to enable the singing of the Lord’s song in the new and strange land of a secular society.
