Book Review

** Guest post from my husband, Jonathan

Christianity Today Study Series: Faith and Pop Culture

This book asks questions about what it looks like for a Christian to engage culture. It covers the main topics of art, literature, sports, TV, movies and how the Christian should interpret and engage with these culturally prevalent topics. It does not necessarily paint things in black or white but tries to challenge the reader to see how each of these areas can be used to bring God glory. It recognizes the depravity that is inherent in the endeavors of people while using questions to help you think about what this looks like in your own life. This book would be great for teaching a series or for self-study. There are a variety of questions and follow-up stories that would be helpful for a variety of people. This book challenged me to be more discerning in the way I read, watch, listen and play. This book helps combine biblical truth with modern-day dilemmas.

We received a free review copy of Christianity Today and needed to post our review on our blog and on a consumer retail website. It's a great way to check out new books without any cost to you. You can click here if you are interested in becoming a book reviewer for Thomas Nelson.
