Culture Shift: The Battle for the Moral Heart of America

by Albert Mohler, Jr.

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Scholar, researcher, professor, and author, R. Albert Mohler Jr. takes on the role of social commentator in Culture Shift as he lays out a Christian perspective on morally- and ethically-murky current issues. In a culture that is rapidly shifting toward secular beliefs, how does a believer stay true to his or her faith? Mohler responds to this major question by giving biblically-based, conservative explanations for how a Christian should respond to specific questions being debated in America right now.

According to Mohler, we are swimming in one of the most complex and challenging cultural contexts ever experienced by the Christian church. Mathew 24:39 says that men “were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away” (ESV). In the same way, we are oblivious to the faults of the culture we have grown up in. In 25 chapters that each address a single, specific cultural issue, Culture Shift clearly and concisely discusses topics ranging from politics to technology, and from science to retirement in 185 tightly-packed, content-heavy pages. No stranger to social commentary, Mohler writes a popular blog as the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

This book provides a broad, easily-understandable analysis of our culture’s problems. Though not exhaustive on any one issue, this book does a great job of explaining key points of conflict and forming well-reasoned resolutions. I highly recommend this book for any Christian looking to become more aware of our current culture and how to respond when religious convictions and society clash. – Weston C. Young,

Book Jacket:

Are you prepared to address the most challenging cultural issues of your time?

Mass media and technology are exploding. Popular entertainment relentlessly pushes the envelope. Biomedicine stretches ethical boundaries. Political issues shift with the polls.

The world in which you live is in the midst of a major cultural transformation–one leading to a widespread lack of faith, an increase in moral relativism, and a rejection of absolute truth. How are we to remain faithful followers of Christ as we live in this ever-shifting culture? How should we think about–and respond to–the crucial moral questions of our day? How can we stand up for the truth?

In Culture Shift, Dr. R. Albert Mohler–one of today’s leading Christian thinkers and spokespersons–addresses these tough topics clearly, biblically and passionately:

•Christian faith and politics
•The Supreme Court and religion
•The truth about terrorism
•Christian parents and public schools
•The abortion debate
•Christian response to global tragedies
•And many more

Here is trustworthy help for developing a comprehensive Christian worldview. It’s timely information powerfully connected to timeless truth that will equip you to stand strong and speak out.
