This is a major research study of the effect of Reform Theology on European and American visual and material cultures. It offers an analysis of Christianity and culture that builds on the scholarship of Arnold Toynbee and Francis Schaeffer and utilizes the careful analytical tools of the Dutch scholars Vollenhoven, Dooyeward and others. Barbers audacious scholarship aims to put Reform Christianity in the center of change and interpretation in a way similar to the great Catholic and Orthodox cultural historians. Barber discusses the Biblical centered energies that clarify, justify and interpret the culture of Western Civilization.

About the Author:

John Barber holds a Ph.D and is a trained Reform theologian.

Review:

'Barber has mastered and/or referenced a huge amount of literature. His book is a great resource...his arguments careful, cogent and revealing. I hope his argument has a great deal of influence on the church...it is like a mighty force for reformation, revival and cultural renewal. There has never been anything like it (as a single volume) in Reform literature. Recommended.'' --John Frame
Professor of Philosophy and Systematic Theology
Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, FL
