Modern Christianity and Cultural Aspirations by D. W. Bebbington

Book Description

Christianity and cultural aspirations are inevitably in tension: the combination invites a suspicion that temporal pursuits have slackened a quest for divine approbation. This text explores this tension in the context of modern Britain and America. In 15 original essays, a range of well-respected scholars examine the cultural aspirations of a broad spectrum of Christians, including Baptists, Congregationalists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Roman Catholics, and Anglicans, as they were expressed in arenas as diverse as politics, education, architecture, and sport. This volume is published in honour of Clyde Binfield, the distinguished ecclesiastical historian.
