Today’s Christian is confronted by challenges on nearly every side with the rising tide of relativism, secularism, paganism and many other “ism’s” that vie for the attention and affections of Christians. Following his excellent book One or Two: Seeing a World of Difference and many others, Dr. Peter Jones, the director of TruthXchange has written a helpful book distilling his excellent teaching on understanding our culture. Dr. Jones book looks at postmodernism, polytheism and Gnosticism showing how they are part of an ancient religious worldview that seeks to impose its view upon Western culture.
Having read other works by Dr. Peter Jones what I appreciate about his writing is he aims to help readers understand not only what is going on in our culture but also how we can reach the culture with the gospel. In a culture that is rapidly changing, we need writers and speakers like Dr. Jones to help God’s people to understand the times that we live in and to help us to speak the timeless message of the gospel to an ever-changing culture. This what Dr. Jones book The Pagan Heart of Today’s Culture does well. This booklet doesn’t contain everything that Dr. Jones has said about these matters. Think of this booklet as a primer to wet your appetite. To read more, I encourage you to read One or Two: Seeing a World of Difference by Dr. Jones. Nevertheless, reading The Pagan Heart of Today’s Culture will help readers to gain some insight from a leading thinker/writer on cultural issues. I highly recommend this booklet to understand cultural issues through a biblical worldview.
