Overview

As Christians engage controversial cultural issues, we must remember that "all things hold together in Christ" (Col. 1:17)—even when it comes to science and faith. In this anthology, top Christian thinkers—including Robert Barron, Timothy George, Stanley Hauerwas, Alasdair MacIntyre, Mark Noll, and N. T. Wright—invite us to find resources for faithful, creative thinking in the riches of the church's theological heritage and its worship traditions.
