There are some books I am quite familiar with, including those by Wells, Kuyper, Newbigin, Plantinga, Guinness, Mouw, Pearcey, and Colson. But I must say there are quite a few I have never heard of(!), such as Clapp, Keyes, Walsh, and Wittmer. Some that come to my mind that were not mentioned include:

H. Richard Niebuhr’s Christ and Culture
George Marsden’s Fundamentalism and American Culture
Kevin Vanhoozer’s Everyday Theology
Os Guinness’ Prophetic Untimeliness
Richard Hofstadter’s Anti-Intellectualism in American Life
Henry Van Til’s The Calvinistic Concept of Culture

  1. Justin Says:

    I really appreciated The World According to God by Greg Johnson (IVP). My RUF minister at University of Kentucky, tries to get the freshman students to read it and talk about it.

  2. brad brisco Says:

    Two I would recommend are “The Church Between Gospel and Culture” edited by George Hunsberger and Craig Van Gelder and Cofident Witness Changing World by Craig Van Gelder.

  3. Chris Says:

    He Shines in all That’s Fair by Richard J. Mouw
    Heaven is Not My Home by Paul Marshall.
    Creation Regained by Wolters.

    I would also recommend Mike Wittmer’s book. I think he did his doctoral work at Calvin on culture. He is publishing a book next year on post-modernism.
