This book seeks to introduce him to a wider Christian audience, while pointing out lessons that may be learned by others in political office and seeking to locate him in terms of the contemporary (largely American) "two kingdoms" controversy. There is no Scotsman, indeed no British person in public life whom I admire more.

For four decades, from 1951 to 1990, The Reformed Journal set the standard for top-notch, venturesome theological reflection on a broad range of issues. With a lively mix of editorial comment, articles, and reviews, it addressed topics as diverse as the civil rights movement, feminism, the Vietnam War, South African apartheid, the plight of Palestinian Christians, and the rise of the Christian Right, all from a Reformed perspective. In this anthology James Bratt and Ronald Wells have assembled select pieces that exemplify the Journal's position at the cutting edge of thoughtful Christian engagement with culture.

I purchased this after seeing it recommended in the now defunct Books and Culture Magazine. I was disappointed but not surprised. Most of the writers are from the Dutch Neo-Calvinist tradition and as such consider themselves culture-engagers. However, one can see the seeds of liberalism (both theological and political) in many of the articles. It comes as no surprise given the trajectory of the Christian Reformed Church denomination, Calvin College, as well as Neo-Calvinist institutions such as the Institute for Christian Studies. It is the same old story.... accommodation to the prevailing culture by Christian scholars and intellectuals who desire acceptance from The Academy . And as for Books and Culture Magazine....no surprise there either....it followed in their path, adding more and more "progressive" contributors until it became similarly saltless and therefore irrelevant.

The back cover of this handy book explains that The Reformed Journal "set the standard for top-notch, venturesome theological reflection on a broad range of issues." Unfortunately, the journal was somewhat before my time: its print run spanning 1951 to 1990. This makes the anthology brought together by James D. Bratt and Ronald A. Wells all the more valuable. Wells was an editor of this journal at one point, and both of these men have a long history on the faculty at Calvin College, which published the journal.

"The Best of The Reformed Journal" collects poignant pieces from the history of the journal in an easy to browse collection, handily contained in a softcover volume. Arranged by topic and time period, the articles run the gamut from theology and politics, art and culture, to race and social concern. Cornelius Plantinga, Richard Mouw, Carl F. H. Henry, Mark Noll, George Marsden, Lewis Smedes, and Nicholas Wolterstorff are just some of the more well-known authors included in the collection.

These pages include relections on Calvinism and democracy, the legacy of T.S. Eliot, reflections on the atomic bomb, commentary on the civil rights movement and Apartheid, and thoughts on pro-life issues and women's liberation. Interesting article titles include "On Looking at Paintings", "Common Grace versus Individualism", "Navel Theology", "Humanitarian Snobs?", "Star Wars in Beulah Land". The selections are usually abbreviated to be a page or two in length, sometimes more. And occasionally a series of articles that spans several Journal editions is found, such as the back and forth between Lewis Smedes, Carl F. H. Henry and Richard Mouw on "Evangelicalism and the Social Question".

If you are looking for enlightened yet easy reading, or if you are up for a look back at how leading Christian thinkers were addressing the problems facing the last half of the 20th Century, then you should pick up this book. At the very least, it will stimulate your curiosity, and it may just add some context to the problems of today.

Nice selection. But nothing much of interest to me. One major exception is the very first article on the importance of keeping history in mind in connection with the church, which is a gem.
