Reviews - What do customers think about Culture Matters: A Call for Consensus on Christian Cultural Engagement?
About as useful as 'Christian Motorsports' Apr 20, 2008
In this book Moore laments the fact that pastors, educators, church members, artists and poets are not devoted to "the advancement of distinctly Christian cultural forms". If you're excited by empty strings of adjectives such as innovative, vibrant, timely, lively and comprehensive then then you'll like this one. Otherwise, a work such as Prophetic Untimeliness: A Challenge to the Idol of Relevance by Os Guinness is much more valuable.
Great book, but for the serious worldview student only! Feb 27, 2008
I would think that T.M. Moore and I probably agree on quite a lot - I found myself loving the examples that Moore uses to make his case for cultural transformation - from Augustine to Calvin to Kuyper, Moore makes his case using almost all of my personal favorites and heroes of the faith. Moore uses the outline and arguments from Augustine's City of God to provide the framework for the book. He inserts various historical and contemporary examples to make his case, which makes his book not only relevant, but educational as well.
This book should come with one disclaimer - it is for the culturally engaged and serious worldview student. Culture Matters is not an easy read and would not be a good place to begin one's quest on learning how to think critically and Christianly about the world - much work should be done prior to picking up this book. I would suggest that Colson's How Now Shall We Live, Pearcey's Total Truth, and Kuyper's Lectures on Calvinism would be a prerequisite to read before picking up Culture Matters, and maybe even Augustine's City of God.

It is a brilliant book. I highly recommend it, especially to artists and anyone wanting to impact a city for God.
