Living In God’s Two Kingdoms – David VanDrunen
I was really excited to read this book, as I love exploring the nature of living as Christians in our world and impacting culture for Christ. I have to say, however, I was very disappointed as I read through this book. I think VanDrunen makes several errors in his judgment. I think he does not accurately portray Niebuhr’s view of Calvin and how Calvin viewed culture. Also he never addresses Jesus words from Matthew 5:13-16. I am not sure you can have a complete discussion of Christianity and culture without tackling that passage. There were a few highlights for the book but they were infrequent and hard to find.
