I’m reading Dick Staub’s The Culturally Savvy Christian and boy does he drop kick some aspects of Christian culture to the ground. Among the quotes that grabbed me so far:
“Christians are called to be the light of the world, not the lite of the world.” (p. 41)
Paraphrasing historian T.R. Glover on the early church’s impact on culture: “the early Christians out-thought, outlived, and out-died their pagan counterparts. This certainly cannot be said of pop Christians.” (p. 42)
“By almost every measurement, in the evangelical quest for cultural relevance, it appears that the influence of culture on evangelicals has been far greater than evangelicals’ influence on culture.” (p. 39)
Is Staub right?
