Christendom Awake: On Reenergizing the Church in Culture

by Aidan Nichols
 
A leading British theologian argues that the church must first regain confidence in its doctrine to shape and influence philosophy, ethics, aesthetics, economics, gender relations, and the forms of the state.

Why has the church become so marginalized in our culture? What must happen for the church to reclaim the influence and status it once held in every realm

Overview

A leading British theologian argues that the church must first regain confidence in its doctrine to shape and influence philosophy, ethics, aesthetics, economics, gender relations, and the forms of the state.

Why has the church become so marginalized in our culture? What must happen for the church to reclaim the influence and status it once held in every realm of life? Writing from a position of "radical traditionalism" and situated in the mainstream of contemporary Roman Catholicism, Nichols calls on the church to recover its perspective and launch once more its creative mission in our secular age.

Editorial Reviews

First Things
In a wide-ranging survey of the ills and hopes of contemporary Christianity, a prolific English Dominican sounds the trumpet of faith to wake Christendom from the slumbers induced by spiritual lethargy and fear.
National Catholic Reporter
"Dominican Fr. Aidan Nichols, prior of the Blackfriars community in Cambridge, is faith to his roots in writing Christendom Awake: On Reenergizing the Church in Culture, a defense of orthodox faith. Nichols suggests that recovering the church's traditional mission will reenergize its witness in areas including philosophy, ethics, aesthetics, economics, gender relations and politics. Amply documented, provocative and interesting."
