Book Review: Culture Shift by Albert Mohler

Please consider ranking my review here.

Culture Shift by Albert Mohler has already been around the block once. This revised and expanded version drops one chapter on torture and gains about six more on Islam, the New Atheism, the digital family, and more. Mohler is one of the leading cultural commentators from the conservative Christian perspective, and his previous radio program (now a daily briefing) along with his blog articles are worth perusing multiple times a week.

The man is a gifted communicator and does for blog posts what John Piper does for Twitter. He is concise but very pointed and profound in what he discuss. Most chapters in the book are based on previous blog posts he's written, usually having to do with articles he's read in the New York Times and other places that reflect American culture and some dangerous trends in various pockets of belief and thought.

I appreciate what Mohler does. Yet I can't help but thinking that you can get the same content in the book on his website for free. He has other books too, but most of them also come from his online articles. However, Culture Shift would be a good gift for someone you know who is not in Mohler's intended audience, someone who hasn't considered the moral and ethical issues tied to the role of Christians in society and politics, abortion, reproductive options, marriage, etc. Those people are not as likely to peruse Mohler's website, but they might, just might, read his book.
