Christian Perspectives on Sociology Feb 18, 2006
Christian Perspectives on Sociology is a collection of essays dealing with the various subfields of sociology covered in introductory sociology courses. The contributors represent a broad range of theological and sociological perspectives; they come from various Christian colleges and address the subfields in which they are most competent. The common denominator for them is a commitment to sociology as a discipline and a commitment to integrating the discipline with their Christian faith. All are committed to the lordship of Jesus Christ and the infallibility of the Bible. The book is not designed to replace a standard secular text but rather to supplement it.
The subjects discussed are:
