Writing: 4.5; Theme: 5.0; Content: 5.0; Language: 5.0; Overall: 4.5; Great concise book on many issues effecting our nation and our culture; Mr. Mohler gives Biblical principles with a fair-minded approach to these issues; this volume just touches on each subject, not meant to be exhaustive I would surmise, but a great read to receive a broad overview of multiple cultural shifts within America; highly recommend. ***March 1, 2018*** ( )

Dr. Al Mohler recently re-released a series of essays – revised and expanded – that speak directly to the issue of Christian response and involvement in culture. Culture Shift seeks to speak to a wide swath of cultural issues – from education and natural disasters to technology and the establishment clause – with Dr. Mohler’s characteristic wit, wisdom, and biblical foundation. Leaving no stone unturned, he addresses the issues that many are too engrossed with to even notice. In the preface he writes:

Aristotle once described our challenge as the problem of a fish in water. Knowing nothing but life in the water, the fish never even realizes it is wet. This describes the situation of many Christians in America – they do not even know that they are wet (xv).

We live and move in amazing days of fascinating technological and medical advances, and the ever-present task of the Christian is to be able to present a well-thought-out, studied and Scripturally-grounded response. Dr Mohler’s book provides an incredible starting point, yet must be relegated to that usage.

A legitimate response to this book is not merely to be culturally informed, but is to begin a new quest to pore over the Scriptures, to commit them to memory, to be so utterly drenched in God’s Word as to be as capable to speak to cultural issues as Dr. Mohler.

If we were to do these things, what sort of culture shift might we see?

A helpful analysis of today's culture written by a key evangelical leader. Mohler should be listened to, and this book should be read by Christians and non-Christians alike to get a view of where our culture is headed. It will be worth publishing this book in further, updated editions as the culture continues to change. ( )

This is an excellent collection of essays from Al Mohler. With his incisive wit and intellect, he cuts to the heart of many of the issues battling it out for the conscience of America today. Expect to be challenged by what he says, no matter which side of the issue you come from.

Highly recommended for those concerned with the shape of the future of our country and, indeed, the world. ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
With his characteristically sharp intellect, Al Mohler addresses some of the most pressing cultural issues of our day. He argues that it is the Christian's responsibility, both to God and to their fellow man, to actively engage these issues head on before they lead to a further decay in American cultural norms. He answers the questions of how to respond to abortion, natural disasters, the "new atheism," and the current trend in public education. This is an important book for anyone wanting to tackle these and other issues effectively. ( )
