| Expanded edition, fiftieth anniversary.
As relevant today as ever, this book is the definitive treatment of the ways that Christianity and culture interact. In a message that rings as true today as it did fifty years ago, H. Richard Niebuhr speaks of Christ and culture as the two points of reference for faith and ethics and challenges a new generation of Christians to be true to Christ in a materialistic age. This fiftieth-anniversary edition of his seminal work includes a new foreword by the distinguished historian Martin E. Marty, who regards this book as "one of the most vital books of our time," an introductory essay by the author never before included in the book, and a new preface by the premier Christian ethicist James M. Gustafson, viewed by many as Niebuhr's contemporary successor. - Back cover.
