This is part one of a new series entitled Christ and Culture. Four men participate in an engaging discussion on the relationship of Christ to culture. Bill Dennison, Darryl Hart, Doug Wilson and Nelson Kloosterman each speak from their unique perspectives.
This project is an asynchronous debate in the vein of the Four Views on… books published by InterVarsity Press. We recorded each participant independently over the course of three rounds – swapping recordings to the other participants between each round.
This series of programs strays from the typical Christ the Center format. The listener should be aware that this is a debate and should not be seen as an endorsement for any particular speaker. Please be advised that future episodes each participant will criticize the other views.
In the first round, we asked a series of questions under the following headings.
- Fine Arts, Etc.
- Theological Undercurrents
- Common Grace
- Natural Law
This introductory episode includes each participant’s opening and closing comments. The entire series is conveniently grouped under one page.
