This book is a must read for anyone who would like to form a Biblical view point on some of the "gray areas" that surround us in life. Much of this info. is really worth taking into account if you would like to engage in culture and express an accurate Christian world view (do we really have a choice??)

good book on grace and how to make decisions on todays great debates: homosexuality, cyberworld, social drinking, entertainment and humanitarian efforts. Conclusion: Grace demands more.
At the beginning of this book, I really enjoyed it. The last few chapters not so much. I wish Brent Crowe went into the humanitarian efforts a little more. Overall it was a good book.
