Overview

Setting his discussion "somewhere between modernism and postmodernism," Bock proposes a way through the philosophical maze. He addresses the concern for theological boundaries but also emphasizes the need to take into account the differing purposes for evangelical denominational and interdenominational institutions, especially scholarly organizations such as the Evangelical Theological Society. Most important, Bock recalls the church's scholars to their mandate for cultural engagement. He warns against diverting our efforts by putting too much energy into intramural controversies and identifies areas of potential cultural impact now opening up to evangelical scholarship. Written by a concerned, informed and visionary leader, this is a book for all those concerned about evangelical theology, scholarship and the church with its missional mandate.
