It is now widely acknowledged that the Western world has been transitioning into a "postmodern" context for some time. Many, if not most, of the commitments that gained ascendancy during the Enlightenment are rapidly changing--including but not limited to our cultural sensibilities, manufacturing practices, philosophical theories, and political forms. Given these shifts, the challenge for Christians of all stripes is to strive to faithfully engage this world without acquiescence or retreat. In INHABITING THE WORLD, Ryan Newson argues that resources contained in the "baptist vision" of Christian life are uniquely helpful in describing how Christians might transformatively and receptively inhabit the world as it now is. Newson unpacks the contours of a Christian identity centered around listening--to oneself, to others, and to the wild voice of God--and focuses his argument by engaging the work of theologian James Wm. McClendon, Jr.

Sources of Light: Resources for Baptist Churches Practicing Theology

Baptist theologians Amy L. Chilton and Steven R. Harmon maintain that the congregational freedom cherished by Baptists makes it possible for their local churches to engage in a practice of theology informed by a full range of voices speaking from the whole church beyond the local church, past and present. In their coedited book SOURCES OF LIGHT, a diverse group of twenty-three Baptist theologians engage in a collaborative attempt to imagine how Baptist communities might draw on the resources of the whole church more intentionally in their congregational practice of theology.
