To Change the World – A Preview

James Hunter in his book  To Change the World: The Irony, Tragedy, and Possibility of Christianity in the Late Modern World pursues a provocative thesis:

The dominant ways of thinking about culture and cultural change are flawed, for they are based on both specious social science and problematic theology. In brief, the model on which various strategies are based not only doesn’t work but it cannot work. On the basis of this working theory, Christians cannot “change the world” in a way that they, even in their diversity, desire (5).
