Blue Twilight by Langdon Brown Gilkey

Gilkey's latest work takes the measure of the current American religious and cultural crisis, assesses recent theological responses to it, and shows how these illumine our understanding of the ongoing creationism controversy. Throughout, Gilkey articulates a faith- stance responsive to the contemporary world of radical pluralism and moral uncertainity - without retreating to simplistic dogmatism.
Gilkey's vision of a "blue twilight" in which light fights with dark in religion and culture, stands as a stark reminder of what is at stake in the future of American religious life.
