How should we listen to, and think in a gospel way about, the ordinary things we come across in modern life? Things we watch, read, eat, and do. There are so many voices saying so many different things that the temptations are to either disengage completely, or find ourselves being influenced more and more by the world.
In this book, godly Christian women talk about a range of areas of life and culture. They help us to be thoughtful about films, books, and the media; set out biblical principles for approaching topics such as body image and racism; and encourage us to shape the world around us for Christbecoming beautifully distinct.
Contributors include Kelly Needham, Jen Wilkin, Erin Davis, Courtney Reissig, Jackie Hill Perry, Dannah Gresh, Jenny Yang, Chelsea Sobolik and Karen Swallow Prior.

For the busy woman who wants to engage and live a life of biblical significance but feels unprepared, this book is for you! Trillia Newbell has done a wonderful job of recruiting women who can help us evaluate culture and articulate biblical truth as we learn to think, listen and speak to a world that in many ways has lost its mooring. Anchored in Scripture, this book will be a tool you will reference often. No more retreating: it is time for us to engage and be beautifully distinct! -- Donna Gaines (Editor, A Daily Women's Devotional; Founder and President, ARISE2Read)
The women who have written in this book know what it means to be in this world but not of it. Through their thoughtful reflections, they demonstrate how our salvation changes not just us, but also the way we relate to the culture around us. These are women I respect and feel privileged to learn from. -- Amy Whitfield (SBC Executive Committee; Associate Vice President, Convention Communications)
Beautifully Distinct is an important resource on culture written by Christian women. These authors bring a helpful perspective as they consider how being a disciple of Jesus Christ affects every area of our lives. Their insights will challenge and encourage every reader. -- Philip Bethancourt (Executive Vice President, Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission)
What does it mean to live in this world with Biblical wisdom and confidence? In Beautifully Distinct, edited by Trillia Newbell, you can join the conversation on faith, life, and culture. -- Aaron Lee
There are many other challenging chapters in the book, especially the ones on race and social media. There is much to learn from the insights of these beautifully distinct women. I was left encouraged and challenged. I agree with Trillia Newbells introductory note, Every chapter is insightful, Biblical and practical. I would recommend this book, not just to women, but also to all men. 5/5 stars. -- Jesvin Jose
How can I, as a completely normal woman, have any influence on my culture? This is something for theologians, pastors or highly gifted power women who have a special position in society. I'm only (mother, employee, pensioner - please insert what suits you). Have you ever asked yourself this question? Would you like to talk to others about your faith in Jesus Christ, but can't find an entry point - you just don't know how and where to start? Then this book is just the thing for you -- Kim Lotz
I think this would be a great book for catalysing a book club in a church or Christian Union context offering 11 different angles on the three themes of Being Thoughtful, Listening Well, and Speaking Well. -- Thomas Creedy
