NCLA Review - The grandson of Billy and Ruth Graham sends a wake-up call to all Christians to make a serious difference in the world by being one who cares what God thinks about them. Masterfully written to illustrate how to practically live out the scripture “be in the world but not of it,” the author shows what “God-soaked, gospel infused priorities look like in relationships, community, work, finances, and culture—and how those priorities can change the world.” The world will not be changed by the big church or big ministries but by Christians who have a great faith, boldness, and determination to live unfashionably different from the world. Powerfully packed with gems of truth that are scripture-based, that if followed by its Christian readers could change the world. Includes a study guide for personal and group use. Rating: 4 —ARG ( )

A very good contrarian book that shows how churches and Christians should not try so hard to be fashionable. Instead, we are called to be different, to be "out of this world". Tchividjian does an excellent job showing how by being different, Christians can make a difference--the difference they are called to make. I would recommend this book to anyone who questions the role of the megachurch in 21st Century Christianity. ( )

Culturally aware, Tullian Tchividjian argues that the Church seems to lose its identity when it strives to be in the world for the worlds good instead of against the world for its good. This little call was a great introduction to counter-culture without abandoning the world for good. Great stories and honesty permeate each page. Should be read again in the future. ( )

This book was amazing! I underlined about half of it, and plan on going back and reading it again in a couple of months, just to soak more of it in. Tullian presents a compelling case for "living against the world, for the world" as Christians by being people of "double listening--listening to both the questions of the world and to the answers of the Word."
