Riassunto: Not so long ago it would have been fair to say that Christian faith played a leading role in cultural life. Today, however, culture has become largely "detraditionalized"; the impact of faith on society is minimal at best. This insightful book looks at the chasm that has opened up between faith and culture and exhorts Christians to reengage society in meaningful ways.
According to Lieven Boeve, every new age challenges the Christian tradition to recontextualize its presentation of meaning and purpose. Today's postmodern world may be an especially difficult setting for faith, yet it too affords Christians many opportunities for dialogue. In the first part of the book Boeve provides a pithy description of the vicissitudes of the Christian tradition in modernity and postmodernity. The second part of the book uses this background to equip Christians to reflect on their faith in a credible and relevant manner without withdrawing from the contemporary world.
