Item Description...
We are living in a time of crisis of moral authority, with culture wars raging all around. Although the Christian churchs message speaks to the deepest issues in contention, it often seems ill-equipped to act fruitfully in our society. Instead it can easily become part of the problem, not its solution - especially if we give in to the polar tendencies to turn into either chameleons or a tribe.

When Christians accommodate and compromise before the pressures of being a dissonant minority, we become chameleons. And when we turn inward as a Christian ghetto, using self-protecting measures out of fear, we become a tribe.

But as Dick Keyes explains, we can avoid the perils of polarization through biblical ways forward. One is apologetics - reaching outside of the enclave or sharpening ones argument for truth. Another is overcoming individualism to reclaim a real Christian community. However, no recommendation will be successful without true dependence on God and a return to foundations.

Chameleon Christianity calls Christians to righteously engage the surrounding culture. It provides tools for expressing the gospel and offers a fresh look at Christian community that crosses barriers of age, race, and gender.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An important read  Aug 21, 2008
Dick Keyes book focuses on how Christians can remain distinctive ("salt") while still proclaiming Christ ("light") in an appropriate way. The book touches on many important issues, most of which are discussed in limited fashion. Nonetheless, I found the book interesting, accessible, and worthwhile. I strongly recommend it, particularly for church leaders.
Salt and light or chameleons and musk oxen?  Jan 28, 2007
Only 112 pages long, this book is a deep yet very readable treatment of sometimes uncomfortable topics. The title comes from one of two errors Keyes sees the modern evangelical/conservative church making, the temptation to adapt so much to the culture around it as to lose its own distinctive identity, failing to truly salt the earth as Christ commands. The book also deals with an opposite tendency to be avoided, that of being "musk oxen" tribalists who so shelter themselves from "the world" that they never reach out with the light of Christ.

This is an excellent read for all evangelical, conservative Christians and would be a good resource for anyone preparing a sermon or study series on Matthew 5:13-16. It would also make a good primary small group text for those interested in considering their own congregation's response to the immediate community and to the culture at large.
Christians Take Heed!  Sep 27, 2000
Dick Keyes draws on his extensive experience in community to formulate a telling synopsis of the Church's reactions to the culture around it. This book is a fantastic review of church behaviour and guide for getting it right in the future. I found this book ethusing because it speaks right into the problems, whose effects I had felt in my own christian experience. I recommend it for any christian, any church leader or christian group leader who truely wants to be relevant without being indetectable through over accomodation of the current culture.
