The Fine Line: Re-envisioning the Gap between Christ and Culture

blog16There is one conversation I’ve been having more than any other in the last two years:  how can we be in the world and not of it?

As a mom with kids, as a pastor whose focus is outreach, connection, being a person… this conversation comes up more than any other.

My kids have been the best conversationalists.  Everyone over… well 20, hasn’t given anything but the good old church lines.  (Except for a select few, and I bought their books promptly.)

I read today on Kary Oberbrunner’s blog, that he’d written a new book and he was looking for people to review it.

I review books.  This is something I really wanted to do.  Finally, tonight, I found a sample chapter.

What I am hoping, is that I can get a few of you to buy the book with me, and have a conversation.

The rest of you should buy this book too, because we need to rewrite our paradigm for Christ and Culture.  I’ve been working Christ in Culture, Christ with Culture (not remembering them exactly right) and you always make someone mad… from the church!

I love this book, as much as I’ve read.  I’m wanting to buy it, who’s with me?

Here’s the link to amazon.

    I haven’t read this book, but the topic is so critical. We must be engaging culture on a more intense level–not creating our own.

    I need to add this to my reading list.

    You’re on. Both of us are eager to read it!

    You might be interested in taking the Christ and Culture survey at my blog. It will place you in one of Niebuhr’s five categories. I’d love to hear if you agree with where the survey places you.
