Engaging with mainstream thought and the secular world

This is a list of pages that discuss engaging with mainstream thinking, or with the secular world in ways that are advocated by this 'new view' in theology and practice.

There is much overlap between them, but each brings something different, because they have been written at different times and in response to different situations. The first group explain 'why' we should engage, the second group discuss theological implications.
