At Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, we believe that the Christian community should be full of thoughtful readers. For this reason, we’ve created a book program called The Current Read that encourages not only our students, but others in the Orlando area, to read a book together, discussing the issues it raises and engaging the topic with the author at a “meet the author” event at the culmination of the program. Each fall, the library staff choose a thought-provoking book for the program and plan events to correspond with the reading.
2014 Current Read Selection:
The Twilight of the American Enlightenment: The 1950s and the Crisis of Liberal Belief
by Dr. George M. Marsden
This book can be purchased through BrightLight Books on the RTS Orlando campus or on www.mindandheart.com.
|Dr. George M. Marsden is the award winning author of numerous influential books and articles in the fields of history and cultural analysis, including Jonathan Edwards: A Life, The Soul of the American University, and Fundamentalism and American Culture. With degrees from Haverford College, Westminster Theological Seminary, and Yale University, he has taught at Calvin College, Duke Divinity School, and the University of Notre Dame where he is currently the Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History Emeritus. |
|In The Twilight of the American Enlightenment, Dr. Marsden explores the state of American culture and popular philosophy during the 1950s. He reappraises the debates of the time, showing how American culture continues to be shaped by the reactions of the left and the right from that era. This important book is sure to stimulate thoughtful conversation in our community.|
