The late JMB is one of my favorite teachers. Although about the fall of the Roman Empire, this book is just as pertinent for current times.
Informative, timely, scripture based
Wonderful book
It started out very interresting with lots of scripture to back it up, as I got into the middle of it the scriptures lessened to a dribble and the writers opinions of culture, Christians and the way we relate to culture took over. It would have been much better if he could have backed his opinions with scripture but in my opinion his opinions are not backed by scripture as all of God's servants were very outspoken as they delivered the messages God had given to a fallen world. I haven't finished the book yet and I hope it getts better and back on track.
James Boice, a Presbyterian pastor in Philadelphia who passed away in 2000, wrote this book in the mid 1990s when the idea of the "culture war" came to the fore. In this book, Boice gives his perspective from the Word of God in the light of the decline of Christian influence in American society. Through 264 pages, Boice filters the Christian worldview through the book City of God by St. Augustine which was written shortly after the sack of Rome by Alaric in 410 A.D. Two cities are presented, one based on the principles based on the God's Word and the one based on the sovereignty of man. What interested me about this book are the examples that were used to give Christians illustrations about how to behave in a wicked society. Daniel spent most of his early adulthood under the rule of the wicked King Nebuchadnezzar where he was looked at as a god. Daniel and his friends were obedient only to the point where their belief in Jehovah God did not conflict with the rule of the king. Daniel was faithful in his service to the king, but when he was told to bow down to an idol, he refused to do so and was thrown in the fiery furnace. In this age, we should be obedient to the rule of the state. However, there will come a time where we must make a stand and not give in to the whims of the despot.

In the question of rendering unto Caesar, Boice lays out four worldviews that the church can take with regards to the state authority and the christian's compliance with it. God alone as authority was the earmark of monastics where they would flee to a remote place and govern themselves. Caesar alone as authority is the view taken by most none-believers and so-called Christians today where all power lies in the state and that the Church is not allowed to check it. This is the essence of despotism in Boice's opinion. The third view consists of the authority of God and Caesar with Caesar in the superior position. This represents cowardice as illustrated by Pontius Pilate where he knew that he was breaking God's law, but yielded to the rabble to win political points. The sound position is the fourth scenario where God and Caesar are authorities but with God's in the dominant position.

Boice finishes the book by offering practical advice on how to be in the world but not of the world. Community outreach is important The mission field one chooses could be in far flung Central Asia, but it could be also next door where men and women are just as lost as those in the remote areas of the world. We are to love our neighbor in terms of providing spiritual and physical comfort. Culture cannot be changed from the top down, but from the bottom up. I am not in 100 percent agreement with Boice in all of this book, but it is a helpful book for Christians on how to be a shining light in a dark world. Five Stars.

He binds everything together with applicable exhortations to "pick up the torch" of genuine Christian living in a secular society. The point? To make America, town by town, a better place to live through living virtously, drawing people to inquire about the God we serve.
