Editorial Reviews

Review

'The videography is excellent and professional, and the stories are compelling....If you're looking for a missional resource to jump start discussions in your small church, this is a great place to start. Amazingly, 4-out-of-the-5 churches featured are small churches, so this should be a real encouragement to your congregation. Just shows that small churches can be missional churches that engage their culture effectively!' -- Confessions of a Small-Church Pastor <br><br> (Confessions of a Small-Church Pastor)

My group thought this was a decent offering. They were encouraged by the stories of community outreach and inspired to be more involved themselves. It gives good ideas for a big city but did not really apply to my southern country setting. You might want to present this to a more academic type because the reasoning is geared more towards them. Still got benefit out of it no matter the relevance.

Where Faith and Culture Meet is a good video resource to foster communication and discussion about faith and culture. This video resource is also a very good companion to Andy Crouch's Culture Making.

I have used this video series in my Theology in the Arts class and it was well received. However this series is a bit slow at times and is very philosophical and "heady." A small group setting seems to be the appropriate context for this series in fostering discussion. The video series does not stand-alone very well without the discussion component and without reading the book Culture Making, on which the series is based.

This series does not capture the entirety the book Culture Making very well either. The best advice would be to read the book before watching the series and before using it in a small group or class.

Here is a bit more information about Andy Crouch's book Culture Making:

Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling is a great book for studying how to be cultivators and influencers of culture. God has called us to be creative and to influence culture and we should, indeed, be attuned to this calling. Andy Crouch gets us back to our call in this well-done and extremely helpful book.

Andy Crouch addresses culture making in his book "Culture Making," as well as on his web site, when he says: "It is not enough to condemn culture. Nor is it sufficient merely to critique culture or to copy culture. Most of the time, we just consume culture."

We are to be leaders of culture, not just consumers of culture. We are to be pioneers of culture who will determine the future of our world. To quote again from Andy Crouch, from Culture Making, "The only way to change culture is to create culture.
