Summary
    A Brief Introduction to Sociology from a Christian Perspective provides students with sociological tools to help them better understand social phenomena. The author integrates elements of faith throughout the texts and allows readers to supplement their biblical exegesis with social and cultural exegesis.

    Each chapter of the book is centered on a core theme and begins with excerpts from scripture and personal anecdotes to stimulate students’ critical thought, highlight major concepts, and draw connections between elements of Christianity and sociology. The opening chapter illustrates how sociology and Christianity can be synergistic rather than mutually exclusive. Students learn why sociology is important and are introduced to early scholars who founded the discipline, as well as key sociological concepts, including the sociological imagination, conflict and integration, and more. Additional chapters explore various methods of inquiry and issues related to race and ethnicity, social class and inequality, sex and gender, and groups and institutions. The final chapter speaks to the future of sociology with an exploration into computational sociology and complexity science.

    Featuring an approachable and faith-based introduction to the discipline, A Brief Introduction to Sociology from a Christian Perspective is both an ideal and unique supplementary resource for foundational courses in sociology.

    Henry Hyunsuk Kim, associate professor of sociology at Wheaton College, holds a M.A. and Ph.D. in sociology and an M.Div. and Ph.D. in theology. He has served as an English-ministry pastor at two different Korean-American churches for about 14 years and has taught courses at a public university, a seminary, for a parachurch organization, and a Christian liberal arts college.
