From the Back Cover
Moore examines the past, highlighting shapers of culture such as St. Augustine, Celtic art, John Calvin, and Abraham Kuyper. In addition, he discusses contemporary movers and shakers, including prison evangelist Chuck Colson and musician Phil Keaggy. Ultimately, he arrives at some recommendations for all believers. He urges them to become more culturally conscious and prods them to view culture as a gift or a trust from God. Not only does Moore address the individual believer but he also speaks to communities of faith. Culture Matters is a challenging read for all thinking Christians.
"This is far and away the best and most important of T. M. Moore's many excellent books. As one of the premier Christian thinkers today, Moore presents a magnificent case for Christian cultural engagement. Well worth reading."--Chuck Colson, founder, Prison Fellowship Ministries
"T. M. Moore focuses his keen analytical mind on the field of cultural analysis. Rather than despair by what he sees, he finds hope in both the effective engagement of Christians in the past and the prospect of developing similar ways to engage culture today. Both intellectually sound and thoroughly practical, this book should be read by every Christian serious about understanding and engaging modern culture."--James W. Sire, author of The Universe Next Door and A Little Primer on Humble Apologetics
