The latest issue of Mars Hill MP3 journal is now online. I highly recommend it for those interested in some of the current discussions surrounding worldview and culture from some of todays leading christian thinkers. The contributions of Smith and Hunter are particularly significant given the influence of their recent books .

|James Davison Hunter, on how the most prominent strategies of Christian cultural engagement are based on a misunderstanding about how cultures work
Paul Spears, on why Christian scholars need to understand their disciplines in ways that depart from conventional understanding
Steven Loomis, on why education needs to attend more carefully to nonquantifiable aspects of human experience
|James K. A. Smith, on how education always involves the formation of affections, and how the form of Christian education should imitate patterns of formation evident in historic Christian liturgy
Thomas Long, on how funeral practices have the capacity to convey an understanding of the meaning of discipleship and death
William Cavanaugh, on the distinctly modern definition of “religion,” and how the conventional account of the “Wars of Religion” misrepresents the facts in the interest of consolidating state power
