I initially purchased this book simply because it was written by John Fischer. All of his books that I have read have added to my life. This book was no exception. Any who are uneasy with the awkward, adversarial relationship between the Christian sub-culture and American culture in the broader sense, will gain an enlightened perspective from this latest work by John. This book, rather than being merely critical, shows how Christians are to go about being in the world, but not of the world without circling the wagons and creating a Christianized version of the world for themselves. As I read I was exhilarated as John articulated so much of what I have been feeling, but could not capture in words. I was rooting him on as a voice for me until the bright light of truth hit one of my blind spots. My reading was much more somber and reflective from that point on. I encourage anyone who wants to really know the ground on which they stand to read this book. You will not come away unchallenged, but you will come away more enlightened.Was this review helpful?
