Angels in the Architecture:
A Protestant Vision for Middle Earth


Christianity presents a glorious vision of culture, a vision overflowing with truth, beauty, and goodness. It's a vision that stands in stark conflict with the anemic modern (and postmodern) perspectives that dominate contemporary life. Medieval Christianity began telling a beautiful story about the good life, but it was silenced in mid-sentence. The Reformation rescued truth, but its modern grandchildren have often ignored the importance of a medieval grasp of the good life. This book sketches a vision of "medieval Protestantism," a personal and cultural vision that embraces the fullness of Christian truth, beauty, and goodness.

"This volume is a breath of fresh air in our polluted religious environment. Hopefully many readers will breathe deeply of its contents and be energized."
--The Presbyterian Witness

"[A] delightful apologetic for a Protestant cultural vision. . . . before you write off these two as mere obscurantist Reformed types, take care. I found that some of my objections were, on the surface, more modern than biblical."
--Gregory Alan Thornbury, Carl F. Henry Center for Christian Leadership

"[T]his book cries out against the bland, purely spiritualized Christianity to which so many of us have become accustomed. . . . I highly recommend it."
--David Kind, Pilgrimage, Concordia Theological Seminary

"Renewing Christendom"

John Caneday on 8/2/2012 1:10:59 PM

Comments: This is a great book that outlines what a Christian culture would look like. The Doug's (Wilson and Jones) argue that the Middle Ages, instead of our perception of them as "Dark," are in fact the best model of what how Christianity would manifest itself culturally. They take it further, though, acknowledging where the medieval's fell short. This is radical stuff, the kind of culture that most evangelicals are unprepared for, and certainly not the kind of culture the modern world is ready to acce... More details

"Renewing an old vision of the Kingdom"

JD Lollar on 10/19/2011 12:50:04 AM

Comments: An earthy/organic take on the place of Christendom in modern culture. Without attempting to reinstitute Calvin's Geneva or Dantaeanizing theology, the Dug-duo remind and refresh the reader's view with a long-range, all-encompassing, life-feast. Truly, a valiant attempt at realizing the good life. Warning: not to be woodenly implemented in fixtures-before-foundation fashion.
