Called to live in the world but not to be of it, Christians must perform a precarious balancing act as they live enmeshed a culture that is quickly abandoning its Judeo-Christian roots. D. A. Carson applies his masterful touch to this ongoing problem as he explores the classic typology of H. Richard Niebuhr's five Christ-culture options. Using an astute biblical-theological approach, Carson lays out a clear vision for unifying Niebuhr's disparate options as he provides a practical paradigm that can help Christians untangle current messy debates on living in the world. Rather than forcing a choice between Christ against culture or Christ transforming culture, Carson encourages Christians to allow all categories of biblical theology simultaneously to inform their worldview.
