Among the different approaches that can be taken towards modern culture, the author proposes a missiological approach as well, so Christians may be better able to redeem parts of the culture for their own use in evangelism. Stressing the inevitability of popular culture, Moore challenges the reader to subdue the culture while staying true to the mandate of the kingdom of God. Study questions after each chapter offer introspection and can be used to encourage action, sparking Christians to "...judge righteous judgment"(John 7:24) pertaining to cultural choices. The author also urges communication with those immersed in the culture to better facilitate dialogue and, eventually, effect cultural change.
