by Henry Van Til
How should a Christian Live in a secular world?
This classic looks at the relationship between religion and culture from a Reformed perspective.
Van Til uses the term culture to designate "that activity of man, the image beare of God, by which he fulfills the creation mandate to cultivate the earth, to have dominion over it, and to subdue it." Culture, therefore, is removed from a totally secular context, is placed in the arena of Christian activity and influence, and is constructively viewed from a biblical perspective. The text explores both the historic development and the contemporary implications of the Calvinistic framework of culture and theology.
