This accessible introduction to Christian worldview explores the question of how Christians can live faithfully at the crossroads of the story of Scripture and postmodern culture.Ideal for undergraduate students and laypeople, "Living at the Crossroads" opens with a brief summary of the biblical story and the most fundamental beliefs of Scripture. The authors then tell the story of Western culture from the classical period to postmodernity, before providing an analysis of how Christians live in the tension that exists at the intersection of the biblical and cultural stories. They proceed to tease out the implications for key areas of life, such as education, scholarship, economics, politics, and church. The result is a deeply thoughtful yet approachable text that draws on the rich tradition of reformational thinking but contextualizes it to a postmodern setting for a contemporary audience.
"* '... [enables] even the beginner to grasp the sense of Scripture as a single great story - a drama in which we are all invited to play a part. I am delighted to see solid scholarship made easily accessible in this splendid fashion.' Tom Wright, Bishop of Durham"
