Well conceived, very well written, and helpful. The writing is clean (uncluttered), clear, accessible, edifying, and even sparkles in places.
"Anthony Selvagios topics are timely and will certainly be of help to many. His writing style is engaging and easy to read. While popularly written, he demonstrates a depth of research in the footnotes. Selvagio underlines the importance of a consistent biblical worldview, and warns his readers against false world views that are attractive. Highly recommended."
Worldliness infects us deeper than our clothing or music. It seeks to inhabit our perceptions and desires. Indeed it starts in the heart. Anthony Selvaggio puts his finger on the pulse of a worldly age, and his diagnosis reveals the crippling idolatry of our hearts in such reigning ideas as individualism, consumerism, relativism, obsession with the new, and contempt for the past. Like a good doctor, Selvaggio does not rail at us about our illness; he aims to heal and so offers solutions in Christ. Whether you are a teenager, a mother, a businessman, or a pastor, this book will bring health to your soul and equip you to live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.
"By making good things ultimate things -- love becomes lust, rest becomes sloth, and so on -- we fall into what used to be called the seven deadly sins. We have a harder time spotting the seven modern idolatries that Anthony Selvaggio outlines for us, but the process is similar: individuality becomes individualism, equal opportunity becomes egalitarianism, and so on. Seven Toxic Ideas Polluting Your Mind helps us to spot those current tendencies and, with Gods grace, contain them."

What does it mean to live a Christian lifestyle? Is it based on behaviors you can pinpoint and things you can see? Or does a truly Christian approach to the world begin far earlier . . . and subtler . . . than that?
There are two conflicting worldviews: the Christian and the non-Christian. These worldviews are in constant opposition, but since they take place in the mind, many people don't realize that they exist at all.
Unfortunately, Christians often live their lives unaware that they are adopting non-Christian ideas and being influenced by the enemy's worldview. Worldliness is too often equated with conforming to a set of external behaviors, rather than the battle of the mind that it truly is. And when Christians are too concerned and distracted by behavior on the outside, it is all too easy for worldliness to slip into our minds and take hold.
This book examines seven examples of particularly toxic non-Christian ideas that cripple the modern Christian mind. It also offers assistance on how to combat these ideas, to the glory of God. Each idea is explored clearly and understandably, and discussion questions are included to help you pinpoint these toxic ideas in your own thinking-and remove them.
Take a look at these seven ideas and see which of them have entered your thinking . . . and be encouraged to remove the pollution with a truly Christian worldview.
This was a good read. It was about how the current technology and ideology have impacted the world and how it can impact the Church in America especially. There are positives to all technology and that is not forgotten by Mr. Selveggio. He goes through how these 7 ideas have impacted us and how to sort through them. He was able to bring out positives when possible and offer a proper view of these ideas. It was a good read and easy to see how the Church can get carried away or become trapped by these ideas like individualism when we avoid topics that we disagree with rather than enter into relationships without compromising our beliefs.
I would like to thank Net Galley and P & R Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
