Cover ArtJohn Walker, at Freedom in Orthodoxy, reviewed James K.A. Smith’s Who’s Afraid of Relativism?

“[I]f the church were to heed Smith’s warnings she would grow serious about cultural formation, developing a rich liturgical life, replete with rituals, fasts, and festivities. She would understand her purpose as, most basically, to be herself. To be a witness to the gospel in a world that knows not God. She would understand that Christian particularity is not something to be downplayed, but embraced, for it is only in our particularity that we have anything to offer the world.”
