"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.
Bob Briner would have told you, "Absolutely!" Roaring Lambs is Briner's manifesto of our proper stance regarding the "culture-shaping arena." Christians can and ought to be the movers and shakers of social change -- "roaring lambs" who infiltrate and make an impact on their workplace and world with their faith. Roaring Lambs was written from Briner's personal experience as an Emmy Award-winning television producer. It takes you into the work world strategies anyone can use. There's also a useful discussion guide that will help you and your friends put shoe leather to your faith. Bob Briner's greatest legacy may well be the way in which, through his own courageous roam, he helped countless Christians discover theirs. John their ranks. Roar with conviction -- and change your world!
The late Bob Briner was president of ProServ Televison and an Emmy Award-winning producer. He was the author of Deadly Detours and Business Basics From the Bible, and with Michael W. Smith, was co-host of the nationally snydicated radio show Roaring Lambs.
