This thesis examines the contrasts and constructive value in the writings of John Howard Yoder and Stanley Hauerwas concerning the relationship of the church to its surrounding culture. The writings of each author are individually examined to understand their common perspectives on how the church should function within its surrounding culture. Differences between the two authors are then described to highlight each one's distinctive contributions and missteps. The last chapter argues for the constructive value of their combined voice concerning the church addressing and living in culture.
