Reforming Culture with Gary Steward

September 29, 2020

On this episode we discuss Gary Steward's new book Reforming Culture: J.W. Alexander's Christian Approach to Social Reform

How should we address the social ills in our culture?  How should we respond to the social and economic inequalities around us?  James W. Alexander (1804–1859) thought deeply about these problems and wrote extensively about how these issues might be addressed from a Christian perspective. Alexander’s thoughts on government, economics, education, and race continue to be relevant for our own day.  While the complexion of our social ills may have changed, the solution to needs of our culture have largely remained the same.
