This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable. A bold, ambitious undertaking, this book offers a broad-ranging account of contemporary American culture, the complex network of symbols, practices, and beliefs at the heart of our society. Writing from a well-considered Christian perspective, Roger Lundin explores the historical background of some of our postmodern culture’s central beliefs and examines the crucial ethical and theological implications of those beliefs.The goal of Lundin’s sweeping cultural analysis is to initiate a meaningful dialogue – within the Christian church about the relationship of Christ to contemporary culture, and outside the church about the nature of the self and of truth. The Culture of Interpretation will be of interest to educated general readers, to scholars in various disciplines (philosophy, history, sociology, English, etc.), and to Christian graduate students in theology and the humanities.
