A Public Faith: How Followers of Christ Should Serve the Common Good
by Miroslav Volf
In A Public Faith Volf argues that there is no single way for
Christian faith to relate to culture as a whole, but rather that its
interaction is varied, dynamic, and always Christ-centered. To this end,
Volf explores major issues on the frontlines of faith today by asking
these poignant questions:
1) In what way does the Christian faith come to malfunction in the contemporary world, and how should we counter these malfunctions?
2) What should a Christian's main concern be when it comes to living well in the world today?
3) How should we go about realizing a vision for human flourishing in relation to other faiths and under the roof of a single state?
Furthermore, Volf addresses practical questions such as faithful witness in a multifaith society and political engagement in a pluralistic world. Compelling and informative, A Public Faith highlights things Christians can do to serve the common good. Accessible and succinct and intended for a broad audience.
