by Douglas Wilson
Why don't we win the culture wars?
Is it really because we’re not being inclusive and welcoming enough? Maybe one more compromise will make the world like us? Or maybe if we watch the news and get really really angry, things will change?
We obviously need a new playbook.
In Rules for Reformers , Douglas Wilson steals the strategies of the radical left and applies them to Christians engaged in the culture war. The result is part combat manual, part cultural manifesto.
Rules for Reformers is as insightful as it is provocative.
What People Are Saying:
"This book is quintessential Douglas Wilson. Which is to say it's very good, very smart, and flashes Wilson's spiritual gift of sarcasm. Wilson makes that old-time religion contemporary not by dumbing it down for the huddled masses, but through his trademark winsome snark. God's people are better for it. His enemies -- not so much." -Steve Deace, nationally syndicated radio host
"More like a lumberjack than a pastor, even when he wears a suit." - The New York Times
"Doug Wilson jumped the shark a long time ago." -Jonathan Merritt
"So just who is this twisted 'Doug Wilson' creature, anyway?" -The Slacktivist
"I much prefer Wilson's sincerity to the vague and Python-esque witterings of the interfaith and ecumenical groups who barely respect their own traditions. He is willing to maintain very staunchly that Jesus of Nazareth was the Christ and that his sacrifice redeems our state of sin." -Christopher Hitchens
"When friends ask me where I go for wise cultural analysis, the first name that always comes to mind is Doug Wilson. For years, I've found Doug's commentary on culture, politics, economics, and family to be profoundly insightful and biblically faithful. In Rules for Reformers, Doug has packaged his wise and witty cultural commentary with shrewd and gracious application of the Scriptures. In doing so, he's given those of us who love the gospel a manifest for grace-driven cultural reformation." -Joe Rigney, author of The Things of Earth and Live Like a Narnian and professor at Bethlehem College and Seminary
