Read from July 10 to October 02, 2012

Great collection of essays bringing the Reformed perspective to bear on a variety of topics (not just on church-y topics, but touching on the arts, politics and gender), both in American life and in the wider world (such as Martin Luther King, Vietnam and South African apartheid). Contributors include intellectual heavyweights like Mark Noll, George Marsden and Nicholas Wolterstoff, among others. It was extremely illuminating for me to see how a Reformed perspective on certain issues, when worked out practically, could differ significantly from stock evangelical positions. I was surprised, for example, to read Nicholas Wolterstoff's views on modern art. If anything, this collection has confirmed my faith in the robustness of Reformed theology and its relevance to our age.It's a plus that all the essays are blog-post sized and seem perfectly suited for the modern attention span.
