Christians are called to be "in the world, but not of the world," to be "salt and light," to shape and influence the culture we live in, not simply to conform to it. There is much we can learn from our culture, but there are aspects that Christians need to take a clear stand in rejecting. The book is tentatively called, "Not of this World: Living Counter Culture Lives By the Spirit of God."(less)
