What is 'culture'? Where does it come from? What impact does it have on us today? And why is it so important? Why Culture Matters is an excellent introduction to culture for all Christians. It is an essential first text for every theological or Bible college, Christian school or church library. It is a simple but not simplistic introduction to a biblical approach to the relationship of Christians to things cultural. John Norsworthy writes with clarity and insight. This book is consistently balanced and carefully nuanced, addressing the key issues of culture, combining an accessible biblical / historical survey that provides a solid basis for application in the world in which we live. Discussion questions are provided at the end of each chapter. Covering such topics as: cultural commission, culture transformation, Jewish culture, Kingdom culture, Christian culture, multi culturalism and cross culturalism. A must read for every student of the Bible and enquirer about the gospel throughout history and in contemporary society.
