Abstract
 
Description
How do Christians account for the widespread presence of goodness in a fallen world? In He Shines in All That's Fair Richard Mouw brings the historic insights of Calvinism to bear on this fundamental question and reinterprets them for a broader audience at the turn of the twenty-first century. Prepared as the 2000 Stob Lectures at Calvin College and Seminary, these chapters elegantly demonstrate that an updated understanding of common grace provides much-needed help for those wrestling with the constantly shifting challenges of cultural engagement. Mouw examines long-standing Reformed arguments between those who champion the doctrine of common grace and those who emphasize a dramatic contrast between the church and the world. These divergent perspectives have a direct bearing on more basic questions: What common ground do Christians share with those outside the faith? How should they relate to the world around them? Mouw shows that Christians need to be actively involved in the world in a way that promotes "human flourishing," so that they can be God's instruments in healing the brokenness of both individuals and society at large. - from Amzon
