How can we counter culture? David Platt has provided a new resource to spur us on to being salt and light and turning the culture upside-down. However, this won't happen in our culture if it doesn't happen in our hearts first.
Platt addresses the following in Counter Culture: the gospel & culture, poverty, abortion, orphans & widows, sex slavery, marriage, sexual morality, ethnicity, religious liberty, & the unreached.
But the reason Platt addresses these is not because he wants to, but because Scripture already addresses these head on. This is the passion and premise that you will discover from David Platt in his books.
This book isn't some la-tee-da self-help resource to make your life better...NO, this is a book that will rattle the cage of your soul and cause you to discard the feathers that are you keeping your soul comfortable and at ease.
Quite frankly, these topics need to be addressed first personally and then globally in our culture. We must know what we are working with before we get to work. Let the work begin in you first, before you begin working on anyone or anything else.
This is a book and an author that will be lurking around for decades to come. If you don't read this book soon, you'll soon be hearing all about it for a long time to come.
I received this book from the publisher (Tyndale) in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review.
