Post Christian: A Guide to Contemporary Thought – Gene Edward Veith, Jr. (2020)

Gene Edward Veith, Jr, Post Christian: A Guide to Contemporary Thought and Culture (Wheaton: Crossway, 2020), 308 pp.

Followers of Christ can always count on Gene Edward Veith Jr. to deliver up-to-date and candid analysis of our culture and its relationship to the church. Such is the case in his most recent book, Post Christian: A Guide to Contemporary Thought and Culture.

Veith’s analysis of contemporary thought and culture is sharp, clear, and crisp. He “rounds the base pads” by alerting readers to reality (part 1), the body (part 2), society (part 3), and religion (part 4). Each part is explored in great detail and subjected to the weight of biblical scrutiny.

Veith’s research is impeccable and show a depth of understanding that is hard to find these days. The presentation of his findings is objective and gracious, yet he never withholds any data for fear of offending the sensibilities of post-modern people. His approach is honest, forthright, and gracious.

While much of the book is discouraging as it reveals the true condition of the current culture and the state of the church, Veith is quick to show how followers of Christ can thrive in such a climate.

I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review.
