Item Description...
Overview
As postmodern thinking continues to pervade our culture, it is increasingly urgent that Christians communicate the gospel in ways that are understandable to the postmodern mind-set. "We've done our work," writes David Henderson, "carefully unfolding God's spoken Word. Now we pack up our insights into well-chosen phrases and send them out across this nation's pulpits and restaurant tables and neighborhood fences. But As postmodern thinking continues to pervade our culture, it is dramatic shifts in American culture have nudged the world out of reach of the words we've so carefully selected." Culture Shift is an invaluable resource for Christian leaders in churches and in parachurch organizations, seminary and Bible college students, and thinking Christians who desire to interact with seekers and nonbelievers. Readers will gain a lucid view of: - how the culture breeds consumers, spectators, and self-absorbed individuals - how people think in a relativistic world with no room for God - how to break out of the Christian subculture to communicate with the postmodern world "The world has moved," Henderson writes. This book will help readers discover where it has moved and how to meet it there.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great Analysis and Advice  Nov 5, 2002
In high school speech classes, we were taught to "know your audience." As an apathetic high schooler, I didn't really care what she meant, but it eventually made sense (once I actually decided to think about it). You wouldn't use sock puppets to explain math to accountants; you wouldn't use in-depth power-point presentations to explain math to first graders. With this in mind, why do many Americans still try to talk about Jesus using the methods used thirty years ago? Why do we use Christian "jargon" to explain Christianity to those outside the faith?

Henderson, as you might guess, contends that modern American Christians must change their approach to sharing the faith in order to fit modern America. The pattern of Henderson's book is straightforward: he examines a particular aspect/mindset/value of modern Americans; he then gives ideas about how a Christian might share Words of Eternal Life with such an American. Henderson's prose is both straightforward and enjoyable. He gets right to the heart of the American mindset, then illustrates it with descriptions from scenes from popular movies, personal anecdotes, jokes, etc.

In all, Henderson does the modern Christian a great service in writing "Culture Shift." Jesus tells Christains to tell others about him ("Go, therefore, and baptize all nations...") and Henderson can help us along the way through this book. Highly recommended.

 
Understanding the World  Jun 14, 2001
This book is not just about "Communicating God's Truth to Our Changing World," but also about better understanding the world we live in today. The author delves into various facets of the modern (American) life to show "Who We Are," (chapter 3-8), and "How We Think," (chapters 9-14). While doing so, he shows not only how deeply our culture has gone into a sort of postmodern chaos, but also gives examples of how he has been able to reach out to non-Christians and see their lives' changed for Christ. Henderson has definitely been affected in his writing by his mentor, the author of the foreword, Haddon Robinson, named one of the top ten preachers in America. This is mostly positive, including Dr. Henderson's "Concepts Worth Remembering" and "Recommended Reading" lists that are at the end of every major section. This book is very readable and helpful for any Christian who may want to know the current culture better as well as how to present the gospel of Christ in the 21st Century. I enjoyed the book for these reasons, but did not feel it was exceptional enough to warrant 5 big stars. However it is very good and any pastor or lay person who is actively involved in the life of their church would enjoy it.
 
Worth The Money!!  Aug 31, 2000
Jason Cruise Founder TodaysPreacher.Com

There are a lot of bad books out there today!! There is nothing worse than spending money on something that you can't use; but, this is not one of those books!!! Henderson's book was super, in my opinion. He is certainly up to speed on today's listener. He uses a constant theme throughout the book which he deems, "God's Word to a _______." For instance, Chapter 6 deals with "God's Word To A Distracted World"; Chapter 8 deals with "God's Word To A Disconnected World." This helps you see how God's Word can reach such a target.

In this work he covers the average person sitting in your audience; what has made them the type of listener they are; their different thinking patterns, etc. David Henderson sat under Haddon Robinson, the "teacher of preachers." You can see Robinson's solid, Biblical influence on Henderson; and, I think this only adds to the credibility of the author.

David Henderson knows how to help you "gain a hearing" with a crowd. The book really helped me better understand today's audience, and techniques to help reach them. I'd really recommend that you read this book ... I think you'll be a better preacher because of it!!!

WOW!!!  Jun 8, 1999
David Henderson has a better understanding of today's culture than most college philosophy professors. He provides awesome insight of how to reach out to people who believe God is absent from their lives, and draw them into Christianity. The book also forces the reader to evaluate the sincerity of his own faith.
 
Extremely interesting view of American culture.  Nov 30, 1998
This book is very thought provoking. I felt the same as the first time I read 1984, and Brave New World. I like his style. There are many quotations and interesting facts. It was a learning experience that I will ponder for a long while.
