A biblical/philosophical study of Christianity and the Culture it Produces
About the Book
Culture is a hot topic today. But of what exactly does culture consist? What is it? Author Richard Knodel not only defines the idea more clearly than ever before but also defends the notion that God himself established this concept in the Creation! Using Knodel’s expert guidance, culturologists now have an amazing new resource for understanding their subject and building upon it. He begins with his definition and then argues the sense of it. Succeeding chapters analyze past Christian cultural failures, show how Christ is a key to world development and survey competing definitions – even that of Islam!
