"Very readable and thought-provoking."--Byron Snapp, Calvary Herald, August 29, 2009
"This book will clarify your thinking, inspire your production, and affirm your parenting."--David Balzer, Mennonite Brethren Herald, August 2009
"Simply the best book that I've read recently. Not only is it brilliant, it's accessible. I cannot gush about this book enough. It really is that good."--Margaret Feinberg, Christian Retailing, July 6, 2009
"Thoughtful and engaging. . . . Crouch's book does signal a hopeful development, which is that the evangelical pursuit of culture warfare was and is a dead end."--D. G. Hart, First Principles (, March 23, 2009
"Crouch writes as one who cares what Christians do with their time in light of God's Kingdom coming."--On Mission Today, January 14, 2009
"Crouch's voice is intriguing and fresh--offering an alternative that escapes the many 'Jesus-stamped' merchandise items as an evangelical tool and implementing a fresh vision for creativity and engaging cultural lifestyles."--Worship Leader, November/December 2008
"This is a must-read book for those who are tired of talking and ready for action. The author sets the scene and tells the story of culture, then rapidly sweeps the reader into this story, finishing with a heart-stopping, imagination-grabbing challenge to go and make something of the world."--Alissa W., Book Bargains and Previews (, September 2008
"Andy Crouch, long a culture influence through film, writing, music and service, points Christians to a new, deeper understanding of their calling in culture. Readers will be profoundly impacted by this book written by one of today's top voices on the subject."--Ann Byle, Grand Rapids Press, August 16, 2008
"Those who have struggled with the sacred-secular dichotomy will find this book life-giving; every Christian interested in changing culture should read it."--Publishers Weekly starred review, May 26, 2008
"Crouch works through the Bible's narrative arc to show the hand of God in the development of culture and makes the case that Christians must be producers, not just critics, of culture in order to create societal good."--Relevant, July/August 2008
"Good introduction to how Christians need to do more than fatalistically talk about the dangers of the world."--Marvin Olasky, WORLD Magazine, November 15/22, 2008
"A masterpiece!"--Byron Borger, owner, Hearts Minds Bookstore [from the 2015 Jubilee program guide]
