Davenant Digests

Protestant Wisdom in Focus For the Whole Church

Current Issue

America is stuck in a political rut. Our partisans constantly bicker, and with social media and cable news incessantly amplifying their voices, many have begun to despair of finding common ground. When it comes to labor, one side champions American workers over their employers, while the other promotes businesses and entrepreneurs, hoping their success will leave workers better off. Both sides, however, take our contemporary economic arrangements for granted. To break through this impasse, Joseph Minich contends we must root ourselves in the enduring truths of humanity’s God-given vocation. Cutting past the shouting and the slogans,
Minich develops a principled account of work by directing our attention to our roles in the world and the church. Work is revitalized in the church but originally grounded in God’s creational mandate to man: “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it.”

Davenant Digests

Many Protestants today have not merely lost touch with their church’s past, but feel that it has lost touch with them.

With Davenant Digests we seek to bring the church’s past into clear focus for Christians today, and use it to shed light on the challenges of the church's present. Written in a clear, lively, and down-to-earth style, these short introductions aim to answer questions that ordinary Christians have, in terms that ordinary Christians will want to read.
