    The Death of Wisdom in an Information Society

    by C. John Sommerville

    A Christian Battle Plan for a Society in Crisis

    by Peter Kreeft

    The battle lines have been drawn. Many Christians have fallen into the trap of proclaiming "Peace! Peace!" when there is no peace.

At the same time, other Christians have been too quick to declare war, mistaking battlefield casualties as enemies rather than victims. In How ...

    The Church as Culture in a Post-Christian Society

    by Rodney R. Clapp

    • Voted one of Christianity Today's 1997 Books of the Year

    Christians feel increasingly useless, argues Rodney Clapp, not because we have nothing to offer a post-Christian society, but because we are trying to serve as "sponsoring chaplains" to a civilization that no longer sees Christianity as necessary to its existence. In our individualistic, technologically ...
