Yet long before the reformed crowd spoke of cities, contextualisation and the urban context of the gospel, there was The Secular City by Harvard professor, Harvey Cox. First published in it has become something of a classic and yet I’ve encountered very little recent work that has engaged (or even referenced, I think) Cox’s work.

In this sequel to his groundbreaking book, "The Secular City," Harvey Cox aims to move past the "modern" or "liberal" theologies of the 19th and 20th Centuries (think Bultmann, von Harnack, Küng, Tillich) and lay the ground for a new Christian thought better suited to a postmodern age/5.

What a breath of fresh air Scaling the Secular City: A Defense of Christianity by J.P. Moreland was to read while living in our 'God is Dead' culture. I generally feel comfortable while defending Catholicism to my protestant brothers and sisters, but always felt just a little inadequate when discussing God with agnostics or atheists/5.
