Everyday Theology
is the title of a book edited by Kevin Vanhoozer (prof at TEDS) which explores cultural exegesis or hermeneutics from a Christian perspective. He picks up where Francis Shaeffer and Hans Rookmaaker left off - interpreting the culture we live in to see the challenges we face and help us interact with our neighbors in communicating the gospel.

You can read an interview with Vanhoozer: Part One and Part Two.

I learned a year or so ago that Plowing was used a text book for one of Dr. Vanhoozer's classes which is pretty cool. Turns out that the he has a brief recommendation for the book in a sidebar of Everyday Theology which you can read if you use amazon.com "search inside" feature.
