-- Pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.
"Don Carson here writes clearly, carefully, and helpfully about the timely topic of how Christians should engage culture. Well-suited to write such a volume, Carson exposes and explodes 'egregious reductionisms' which he says too often afflict Christians. Reading this book has sharpened my own understanding. So buy the book you're holding. Read it. Pass it along to folks in your congregation. And reduce 'egregious reductionisms'!"
-- Pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City
"There is no more crucial issue facing us today than the relationship of the church and the gospel to contemporary culture. Don Carson's treatment of this issue is the most balanced one out there. Rather than grinding an ax or pushing his own paradigm, he listens carefully to the Scripture and brings us in the end to a sophisticated simplicity about these matters. I highly recommend this book."
"Make room on the shelf for this penetrating book by Carson." --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
