In keeping with the aims of the acclaimed Gospel and Our Culture
series, StormFront investigates how the gospel intersects American
culture and seeks to reorient the church to its full and proper
missional vocation. Four authors noted for their understanding of
modern church life offer a sober yet hopeful critique of American
culture that focuses on consumerism and the privatization of religion,
and they challenge the Christian church to embrace its corporate task
to be salt and light to the world.
Amid the many books on the subject, this one is distinctive in its
concern for application. By constrasting contemporary life with a
thoroughgoing reading of the biblical narrative, the authors help
American Christians discern how our cultural location makes it
difficult to live out the transformative message of the gospel. Few
readers will fail to be engaged by the lessons offered here.
