Week 9 - Bevans, Ch. 9 (Countercultural)

Countercultural model takes people seriously but calls for a "u-turn" of the mind. Culture is not evil and does not need to be replaced. Encounter or engagement of the culture perhaps a better term. Gospel has primacy over culture because humans and culture are ambiguous. Dangers include becoming sectarian. Baxter led movement to identify Catholics as Catholics, over and above being American.
