Risk has become a central concept in modern life. We increasingly structure life around attempting to manage an uncertain future, in which more knowledge simultaneously provides safety and increases our awareness of what we do not know.
We make ‘risk decisions’ every day about our money, cycling to work, what we include in our diet. We have an overwhelming and sometimes apparently contradictory volume of knowledge at our disposal that may aid, but can obfuscate, our decisions.
However, whilst the risk society is a secular phenomenon, it provides an opportunity for Christians to live distinctively and attractively.
