Weapons of Mass Destruction are in the hands of a society though technologically informed and functioning at genius level functions at a troubled High School sophomore's level relationally. 

The Church is armed with Truth that can transform this wayward society and its institutions. I know this is not the Christian Discourse forum, so I framed this as a lead up to my resource question.

Can anyone recommend great works on the subject of sociology especially as it impacts societal institutions and governance from a Christian perspective? These titles should preferably be in Logos, but other formats are acceptable.

Thank you in advance.

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

Thanks JAL,

I do miss Rosie. Does anyone know how she is doing? Was this her last post?

Among Vern Poythress' series of Redeeming [Subject] books is Redeeming Sociology. You might find it differs from the more integrationist approaches to Christian sociology. (This link is truly free - Poythress posts most of his books for free online as a matter of principle.)
