Nonfiction Book Review by Libbi~
Culture Shift, by R. Alber Mohler Jr.
America is losing her heart. She is becoming a dirtied, hopeless, and heartless criminal. With issues ranging from debt to the horrendous crime of abortion, America needs a shove in the right direction. And quick. Not only are Americans consumed by are technological cravings, but we are almost as dependent on technology as we are on food. Imagine going 30 days without one single electronic item. No phones, computers, TVs, iPods, cars, and the list goes on. If you are like the majority of America, you just started hyperventilating, sweating, and shaking. It is scary how much America relies on technology. Not only this, but 4 out of every 10 women in America has had an abortion. That means that for every ten babies conceived, only six are birthed. R. Albert Mohler shows these truths in a different light then many of America’s citizens would. American culture needs a shift. And fast.
I thought this book was a much needed wake-up call to America; exposing the dark areas of this country in a way most churches wouldn’t dare. What he speaks on is so relevant to America’s Christians today. WE as the body of Christ need to stop sitting and start working toward a better future! In fact, one of my favorite quotes from the book is:
“How are Christians to think about these new cultural challenges? Some Christians prefer not to think seriously about these issues. This falls far short of an acceptable posture, however. Those who do not think seriously about how Christians should respond to these challenges will find that the dominant culture will simply pull them into its vortex. They will simply fail to live and think as Christians.”

The only downside of this book is that at certain times, it was a bit hard to get in to, and slightly uninteresting at other parts. I would recommend this book especially to anyone entering a seminary. This book would also be great for any high school student about to enter college. Overall, it was a great book, and I sincerely hope you will read it!
