Culture is dynamic and changing—and that change often comes in waves that threaten to overwhelm us. But as Christians, we’re able to secure ourselves to solid, unchanging truth in the chaotic ocean of culture. John Stonestreet and Brett Kunkle show us how to navigate the tides and pass those skills on to the next generation.
A Practical Guide to Culture is a profound, witty, and forthright manual written by two concerned dads who also happen to be two of the most effective worldview and apologetics experts of our day. Based on their deep experience working with tens of thousands of teenagers, John and Brett show how to stop giving in to a degrading culture that makes kids unhealthy and sad and start raising kids who love Jesus and live without fear and regret.
I wish John Stonestreet and Brett Kunkle had written A Practical Guide to Culture years ago. As a parent and youth pastor, I was often concerned about the impact the culture might have on my children and students, and I wasn’t always sure how to address the challenges. John and Brett have written a hopeful, engaging book that will prepare parents, educators, and youth leaders to equip young minds. This isn’t just a survey of culture; it’s an active, purposeful, and thoughtful action plan. If you want your students and children to represent Christ in a fallen world as they thrive in their Christian walk, A Practical Guide to Culture is an essential guide.
Will the next generation be defined by the radical cultural shifts taking place, or will the culture be defined by a generation committed to the radical love, redemptive truth, and restorative grace of Jesus? In A Practical Guide to Culture, John Stonestreet and Brett Kunkle provide a biblically based roadmap designed to assist a generation’s navigation through the difficult currents of relativism, decadence, and apathy, while simultaneously shining the light of Christ.
“Everyone who works with students and cares about their future needs this guide. It’s exactly what the title says: practical. John and Brett have filled this book with clarity, wisdom, and loving advice on the most important issues facing this generation.”
“A Practical Guide to Culture is smart, clear, and incredibly helpful for Christians trying to raise faithful, resilient children in a post-Christian—and increasingly anti-Christian—society. This is abook written by intelligent men who know how to relate big ideas to daily life in terms everyone can understand. When people ask me, ‘But what can we Christians do about the collapsing culture?’, I will emphatically recommend this book as the place to begin. I’m buying two copies: one for my family’s use and one for my pastor’s.”
