Publisher's Description

Prepare to Engage

Mass media and technology are exploding. Popular entertainment relentlessly pushes the envelope. Biomedicine stretches ethical boundaries. Political issues shift with the polls.  Christian orthodoxy is questioned on every front.
 
The world in which you live is undergoing a major cultural transformation—one leading to a widespread lack of faith, an increase in moral relativism, and a rejection of absolute truth.
 
In Culture Shift, Dr. R. Albert Mohler—one of today’s leading Christian thinkers and spokespersons—addresses these and other tough topics clearly, biblically, and passionately:
· The effect of the "digital deluge" on individuals and families
· The truth about terrorism
· Christian parents and public schools
· The rise of an aggressive "new atheism"
· The abortion debate
 
Here is trustworthy help for developing a comprehensive Christian worldview…based on timeless truth.

Scholar, researcher, professor, and author, R. Albert Mohler Jr. takes on the role of social commentator in Culture Shift as he lays out a Christian perspective on morally- and ethically-murky current issues. In a culture that is rapidly shifting toward secular beliefs, how does a believer stay true to his or her faith? Mohler responds to this major question by giving biblically-based, conservative explanations for how a Christian should respond to specific questions being debated in America right now.

According to Mohler, we are swimming in one of the most complex and challenging cultural contexts ever experienced by the Christian church. Mathew 24:39 says that men “were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away” (ESV). In the same way, we are oblivious to the faults of the culture we have grown up in. In 25 chapters that each address a single, specific cultural issue, Culture Shift clearly and concisely discusses topics ranging from politics to technology, and from science to retirement in 185 tightly-packed, content-heavy pages. No stranger to social commentary, Mohler writes a popular blog as the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

This book provides a broad, easily-understandable analysis of our culture’s problems. Though not exhaustive on any one issue, this book does a great job of explaining key points of conflict and forming well-reasoned resolutions. I highly recommend this book for any Christian looking to become more aware of our current culture and how to respond when religious convictions and society clash. – Weston C. Young, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Editorial Reviews

“From grade inflation to global calamities, Albert Mohler is a steady guide. From the psychological coddling of the American ego to the hollowing of the American conscience, Mohler is unremittingly clear-headed. From Nineveh to New Orleans, Mohler holds the mirror at a blazing fortyfive-degree angle between heaven and earth. The burning light of divine wisdom illumines a hundred shadows of our
human folly. And at the center of the blaze is the mighty cross of Jesus Christ defining the final meaning of everything. I thank God for Albert Mohler.”
—JOHN PIPER, pastor for preaching and vision,Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, MN

“Al Mohler is a unique gift to the church. His writing combines penetrating theological discernment and insightful cultural analysis with a passion to faithfully proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. I’m delighted that Al’s wisdom is now available in this book. May it be the first of many.”
—C. J. MAHANEY, Sovereign Grace Ministries

“We all know, as Dorothy said to Toto, that ‘we are not in Kansas anymore.’ But how to apply the deep truths of our Christian faith to a culture that seems to be transmogrifying before our very eyes, well, that’s perhaps the most difficult question facing the church today. In this well-written book, Al Mohler surveys the landscape and offers insight and wisdom that helps us do just this. A manifesto for responsible
Christian engagement!”
—TIMOTHY GEORGE, founding dean of Beeson Divinity School of Samford University and senior editor of Christianity Today

“Thoughtful Christians seeking to engage the culture from a well-informed and thoroughly bibilical perspective will find an impressive resource in this new work by R. Albert Mohler. Culture Shift is an outstanding contribution, which I heartily recommend.”
—DAVID S. DOCKERY, president, Union University

“Dr. Albert Mohler brings his intellectual brilliance, moral wisdom, and theological insight together in a book that belongs on the shelf of anyone who is interested in both understanding the shifting sands of morality in our culture and how to deal with it. If you are in that category this is a must read.”
—JAMES MERRITT, pastor of Cross Pointe Church, Duluth, GA, and host of Touching Lives media ministry

“Understanding our culture is a matter of Christian responsibility. Culture Shift helps us to do that and do it well.”
—DANIEL L. AKIN, president, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, NC
