Culture and the Church: Resources for Discussion: The Supremacy of Christ in a Postmodern World

The Supremacy of Christ in a Postmodern Worldedited by John Piper and Justin Taylor is a great resource for the discussion on the church and culture.  This book seeks to address the issues relating to making the gospel relevant to a postmodern society yet still teaching and preaching the gospel as the inerrant Word of God.  This comes out of a conference by the same name that was held at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota which is Piper’s church.  The contributors are varied and include perspectives from Voddie Baucham Jr., John Piper, D. A. Carson, David Wells, Tim Keller, and Mark Driscoll.  The issues addressed in light of the gospel in a postmodern culture include speaking truth in a relativistic culture, love and joy in the life of a Christian being displayed to the culture, the churches role in the culture, and the role of the gospel in the culture.  This is the book that sparked my thinking for the church and culture blog discussion for this month, and I would highly recommend it to gain some different perspectives on the issues that this blog has started to address this month.
