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 transformationone leading to a widespread lack of faith, an increase in moral relativism, and a rejection of absolute truth.
In Culture Shift, Dr. R. Albert Mohlerone of todays leading Christian thinkers and spokespersonsaddresses 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.
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 cultures 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.
