Christ and Culture: An Introduction

Dr. Bill Fleming, the pastor of Rogers Memorial Presbyterian Church (Links to an external site.), provides a quick overview of Niebuhr’s book, Christ and Culture. He lays out the five different ways that Christ and culture may relate to one another, as they have been formulated by Niebuhr.


As you watch, think about the following:

  • What does Dr. Fleming mean that Niebuhr’s project is not “prescriptive” but “descriptive?

  • Which of these five paradigms most aligns with your own view and why?
