Much Needed Culture Shift

Al Mohler's first full-length book should be required reading for Christians struggling to understand cultural issues, and how to respond biblically. In Culture Shift, Al Mohler has expanded on many of his past blog posts - a blog that majors on the subject of Christian response to cultural winds and crises.

An expert (of sorts) on the subject, Mohler has written an excellent primer on Christians and cultural issues such as terrorism, abortion, public schools, and racism. Though not intended to be exhaustive,Culture Shift engages the reader at an introductory level that is highly accessible, biblical, and informative.

After building the frame in the first few chapters by drawing from Augustine's city of God and city of man analogy, Mohler moves to specific issues for the brunt of the book. If the author's aim is to "understand our culture and its challenges because we are to be faithful followers of Christ and faithful witnesses to the gospel", he has succeeded and left the Church a great resource. Culture Shift is highly recommended!

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
