Where will the Critical Theory and Social Justice Movements take us?
Critical theory, and its expressions in critical race theory, critical pedagogy, and queer theory are impacting our culture. Ideas about race, class, gender identity, and justice have radically shaped how people think, act, and view on another both through Christian and secular spheres alike.
In Critical Dilemma, authors Neil Shenvi and Pat Sawyer highlight the influences of contemporary critical theory, considering it in the light of clear reason and biblical orthodoxy. While acknowledging that it can offer some legitimate insights regarding race, class, and gender, Critical Dilemma reveals false assumptions at the core of critical theory, arguing that it poses a serious threat to both the church and society at large.
Expounding upon exhaustive research and careful analysis, Shenvi and Sawyer condemn racism, urge Christians to seek justice, and provide a path forward for racial healing and unity while also opposing critical theory's manifold errors.
