Making the Best of It

John G. Stackhouse

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines H. Richard Niebuhr's Christ and Culture in the context of how Jesus Christ could relate to society and culture. It suggests that Niebuhr's book can help the reader to see that different aspects of the same culture can prompt different stances by different Christians. It also recommends a kind of hybrid types IV and V of Niebuhr's odd type IV, which is the “Christ in paradox with culture”.

Keywords:   H. Richard Niebuhr, Christ and Culture, Jesus Christ, society, culture
