I hardly ever read a book from cover to cover in one sitting. I was glued to this book from beginning to end because it is so relevant, so logical, so engaging, so insightful, and most of all - full of practical helps and solutions in penetrating culture with the gospel!

Every once in awhile a book comes along that as a pastor I hold it up in front of my congregation and say, "You need to get and read this book and then give it away - or buy two copies so you can use one as a resource and get another to give away."

Jonathan Morrow's book is such a book. I think we are living in as James White says, "Serious Times," and as such it's important for Christians to think seriously about how our faith and our influence in culture intersect. In this book Morrow takes on a monumental task - in four idea packed sections he addresses how our faith and culture intersect; secondly, how we can prepare ourselves to engage culture; thirdly, particular areas where we must engage; and lastly, ways our churches can engage in culture, and insight into why we think and act the way we do.

The book addresses issues like science, bioethics, relativism, sexual issues, and the stewardship of creation. There are very interesting interviews with experts in nineteen different areas where Christians are already engaging culture, and how we can learn from their examples (e.g., Craig Hazen, William Lane Craig, Scott Klusendorf, Dennis Rainey, Jay Wesley Richards, Scott Rae, and C. John Collins).

Each chapter has helpful statistics, questions, and insights to help you engage the issues. Also, in each chapter there are recommended books, websites, and DVD's on the topics and as mentioned above - helpful interviews with experts in the different areas covered.

"Think Christianly." Francis Schaeffer embossed these words on the hearts and minds of evangelicals during the later part of the twentieth century. Schaeffer's plea to cultivate a Christian worldview is at the heart of the book under consideration. Evidently, Shaeffer's call to think Christianly made its way into the fabric of yet another Christian writer. Jonathan Morrow's work, "Think Christianly" searches out the best way to intersect an informed biblical worldview with culture; a worldview that never compromises the truth - yet makes well-paved inroads into the lives of people who have yet to trust Christ.

Part One: Understanding Our Intersection

Morrow stresses the importance of understanding culture. He utilizes Kevin Vanhoozer's excellent definition: "Culture is the environment and atmosphere in which we live and breath with others." The author adds, "Culture is simply what people make of the physical stuff on our planet as they relate to one another. The world, on the other hand, is hostile to life with God and his kingdom. So while Christians can't help but be involved in the culture-making process, we must never become friendly toward the world." Morrow strikes the biblical balance between being engaged with culture and maintaining a robust Christian worldview.

He issues a challenge to equip the next generation for the betterment of the gospel (a challenge that this writer included in his doctoral dissertation). At the heart of this challenge includes several key components:

Mentors are crucial to spiritual development.
Peers are critical to developing a vibrant faith.
A robust biblical worldview.
Spiritual training and discipleship.
A compelling vision of the Christian life.

This book is amazing! Such a great resource to have, especially for those who encounter push-back from those around them regarding a myriad of issues surrounding Christianity. This book will help you defend the Christian faith, and does so with clarity and ease. I feel like I've built a deep well of knowledge, and would feel fairly confident speaking to anyone about touchy issues regarding why I believe what I believe, and do so in a winsome and polite way.

I recommend and have purchased this book for a few of my friends with teens who desperately NEED this information in order to avoid walking away from their faith once they leave home (college, etc.) - I know they'll encounter "deep" sounding arguments against the faith, but that are actually shallow and not very well thought-out. This book is so thorough, it provides a rebuttal to nearly any of these objections. I wish I had enough money to buy a copy for every high-school and college student in my church!

Buy this book today - you won't regret it!

"We live at a time in which Christians are more consumer driven than truth driven. We have unknowingly become apprentices to the blind guides of hedonism, naturalism, and pragmatism, and this is eroding our ability and motivation to communicate and embody the Word of God in this generation" (Preface)

In his groundbreaking book, The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind, Mark Noll made one of the most devastating assessments of Evangelicalism when he said,"The Scandal of the Evangelical mind is that there is no Evangelical mind." Since then, those words have haunted Evangelicalism and in many ways been the wake up call to a renewal for Christians to love God with their minds as well as hearts. For too long Christian thought retreated behind closed doors where it grew stale among dust and cobwebs.

There has however, been a spark of life in the Evangelical mind. There have been many who have rightly called Christians to reclaim the gift of the mind for the glory of God. Hopefully, Noll is less right than he was almost twenty years ago in regards to the absence of the Evangelical mind.

Following a long train of books calling Christians to love God with their minds, Jonathan Morrow has recently written a book urging Christians to apply their minds in a quest for applying God's truth to contemporary culture. Think Christianly: Looking at the Intersection of Faith and Culture is a balance between Christians taking their faith seriously in their own lives, the church and the world and then bringing God's truth to bear on all of life before a watching world.

The Biblical Call for Engagement

If the Christian faith is to intersect with culture than there must be some sort of engagement with it. This is precisely what Morrow is seeking to explore.
