Product Description

Often we hear that our Christian faith should relate to every aspect of our daily lives. Does this mean that it should relate to our cluttered email inboxes? Should it relate to things like baseball or even doing the dishes? Philip Ryken in He Speakes to Me From Everywhere takes topics like these and turns them into meditations on living out the Christian life in a cult that often forgets God. These meditations will demonstrate just how vast, rich and comprehensive the Christian life truly is. Allow Philip Ryken to walk you through the difficut topics of contemporary life by helping you to develop biblical perspective on all of life.

Publisher's Description

Fifty meditations examine our culture from a Christian perspective. Covers nine topics, including the family, sports and leisure, politics, feasts and festivals.


Philip Graham Ryken’s latest book, He Speaks To Me Everywhere: Meditations on Christianity and Culture, is a collection of short essays on a wide range of topics. Divided into nine categories, the brief chapters were originally presented as occasional talks at Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, where Ryken has served on the pastoral staff since 1995. The foundational premise of the book is that Christianity relates to all of life, not just a little compartment labeled “religion.” Indeed, topics covered include marriage and family, technology, sports, politics, and social issues.
As the mother of three teenagers, I found the chapters on courtship and modesty encouraging when so much of what I see in the world---and often in the church--is not. Ryken’s insights into how Christians should understand the events surrounding 9/11 covered a broad spectrum in a surprisingly limited space, but had some refreshingly new perspectives. My favorite portion of the book was section eight, “Church History.” Especially intriguing was the chapter on The Church Mothers, in large part because it is a topic rarely, if ever, discussed in Evangelical circles. The reference materials in the endnotes will whet the appetite for further reading.
This is a good book for all literary tastes, easy to pick up and put down as time dictates. Most readers will not want to read it straight through in a single sitting without taking time to reflect on the content, if only between the main sections. This could be used as a reference work for those wanting to add brief comments on contemporary culture to a Bible Study or Sunday school lesson (including The Prayer of Jabez and Dr. Phil!). Ryken has written a little something for everyone. – Pam Glass, Christian Book Previews.com
