"Despite all the fancy buildings, sophisticated programs, and highly visible presence, it is my contention that the church is almost a non-entity when it comes to shaping culture. In the arts, entertainment, media, education and other culture-shaping venues of our country, the church has abdicated its role as salt and light."
Bob Briner wrote Roaring Lambs for one reason. He wanted to the church begin to shape culture instead of being shaped by it. And many Christian artists have heeded that call, including Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman, Steve Taylor, Sixpence None the Richer, and others. For those who wish to engage our culture, and to shape it with the good news of God, this book is a must read.

In his book and the accompanying discussion guide, Bob Briner issues a clear call for Christians to reclaim culture by joining it rather than running from or boycotting it.
