Book Review: Culture Shift by Al Mohler

It is with great pleasure that I recommend to you Culture Shift by Al Mohler (a.k.a. The Smartest Man Alive). It is a marvelously helpful and insightful analysis of present-day American culture, and it gives practical advice on how thoughtful Christians should approach today’s issues.

In 160 short pages, Mohler discusses such topics as the Christian’s role in politics, the abortion debate, the state of public schools, terrorism, torture, atheistic science, natural disasters, pluralism, today’s “coddled” generation, and the burden of history (Hiroshima).  How Mohler could possibly cover all these topics so thoroughly in so little space is a mystery to me, but then again, maybe it comes with the territory of being the Smartest Man Alive.

(Now, lest you think me indulging in hero-worship bordering on idolatry, let me just say for the record that I’m speaking partly in jest–but Mohler is without doubt a highly intelligent & clear-headed man.  The Church needs more like him.)

I firmly believe that young Christians in particular should all read this book.  The world is constantly bombarding us with pernicious lies and irrational thinking!  Read this book to help clarify and solidify in your mind what a biblical worldview looks like.

Thought For The Week

I want to clarify that there is no political problem that is not really a heart problem with hearts not connected to Christ. Only one Kingdom is really important, and this isn't it.

But just as it's sad to see poorly coded software, a badly built building, or an ugly city, it's even more sad to see a nation being thrown away. As custodians of this earth, we should do better.

-Mark Ritchie
