Recovering the Christian Mind

The Center for the Study of God & Culture exists to encourage Christians to relate cultural and political issues to the theological framework of the Christian faith, to view all of life in relationship to the sovereign purposes of God as the antidote to the outrage and fear which characterizes so much of the Christian response to the evil of our age.

To that end, we produce resources and podcasts with the objective of recovering the Christian mind. That sentiment is not original with us.

The English Anglican theologian Harry Blamires (1916-2017) published Recovering the Christian Mind in 1988 as a response to the secularism of the late 20th century. It was a follow up to his 1963 The Christian Mind in which he wrote:

"There is no longer a Christian mind. There is still, of course, the Christian ethic; a Christian practice, and a Christian spirituality… But as a thinking being the modern Christian has succumbed to secularization. He accepts religion — its morality, its worship, its spiritual culture; but he rejects the religious view of life, the view which relates all earthly issues within the context of the eternal, the view which relates all human problems — social, political, cultural — to the doctrinal foundations of the Christian Faith."

Episode 33: Alun Ebenezer on God’s Design for Manhood

AUDIO: Alun Ebenezer with Paul Edwards

Alun Ebenezer says we are at “a watershed moment in the reconstruction of twenty-first century man…it is open season on manhood.”

Alun joined Paul on The Bob Dutko Show in Detroit to discuss his new book, Call to Action: Become the Man God Designed You to Be.

The world needs real men. Christian men. But real manhood doesn’t just happen. Are you ready for basic training? 

Alun Ebenezer calls men to stop being passive and pursue godly character. In thirty chapters, he provides practical steps for pursuing godly manhood. Take action to become the man of God you must be—the man who our churches, schools, universities, workplaces, families, communities, and countries need you to be.
