Whither Christian Culture?

Here is a link to an interesting website and blog (it contains numerous articles about and those written by the Catholic historian Christopher Dawson) Dawson wrote about Christianity and culture and some of his works sound as if they were describing our culture today, even though many were written several decades ago. He said: "A society which has lost its religion becomes sooner or later a society which has lost its culture.” http://www.geocities.com/dawsonchd/

Question: are Christians losing their culture because they are losing their religion?

This site looks like an excellent place to begin reading Dawson. Another writer who is on the same track is Richard John Neuhaus. A recent article in First Things entitled Our American Babylon, deals with the tension of a church in the world but not of the world. The current issue of First Things is always inaccessible on the web site, but the article will be available soon online.
