'Modernity, Steve Long tells us with his patented acerbity, is a broken record that never stops repeating its supposed novelty. If broken records require sharp, swift smacks to be knocked out of their tiresome grooves, Long's palm-sized book delivers a salutary slap that gets us back on track - and out of confused modern conceptualities that pit theology against culture. An excellent, masterly introduction to its topic.' -?Rodney Clapp, author of 'A Peculiar People' and 'Border Crossings'
'This work, as the title suggests, offers a bird's eye view of the state of play between theology and culture. It provides a valuable summary of the contribution of Richard Niebuhr to the subject, but also suggests there is a need to revise Niebuhr's classi?cations in the wake of the rising in?uence of the theology of Henri de Lubac common to both the Radical Orthodoxy and Communio Catholic scholars. From de Lubac's perspective, Christ transforms cultures, rather than standing aloof outside them. The dynamics of this transformation is now a pressing theological concern which ?ows over
confessional boundaries.' -?Tracey Rowland, author of 'Culture and the Thomist Tradition: After Vatican II'.
