Revisiting ‘Faithful Presence’: To Change the World,’ Five Years Later

Eight contributors assess the thesis of James Davison Hunter's 2010 book, "To Change the World: The Irony, Tragedy, and Possibility of Christianity in the Late Modern World," on its fifth anniversary. In many ways the book has been influential beyond its numerical readership. How have its claims stood up?

In 2010, noted University of Virginia sociologist James Davison Hunter published the landmark book To Change the World: The Irony, Tragedy, and Possibility of Christianity in the Late Modern World. On the five-year anniversary of its publication, we asked eight contributors to engage the book's thesis and assess its effect on the ongoing interaction of evangelical Christians with the surrounding culture. The result is The Gospel Coalition’s first eBook, Revisiting ‘Faithful Presence’: To Change the World Five Years Later. You can download the book, for free, to read in PDF format.
