Discipleship in the Present Tense reflects on the intersections of faith and culture in our contemporary world. "Intersections" may bring to mind two roads meeting at right angles, with stop signs. The intersections in this book are more like freeway cloverleafs: the traffic keeps moving. Suggestion: start at the end, with two interviews that are real conversations, not perfunctory Q&As. Then pick and choose, tapas-style, from the tasty selection of essays.--John Wilson, editor, Books & Culture

--John Wilson, editor, Books & Culture"Few people are as qualified as James K. A. Smith to write a book on the intersection of faith and culture. Whenever he speaks, I listen. In this book, you'll find winsome but profound essays on following Jesus in the 21st century. Read it and be challenged."
--Jonathan Merritt, faith and culture writer; author of A Faith of Our Own: Following Jesus Beyond the Culture Wars "As a busy practitioner leading the church and Christian ministry in this hinge period in history, I often dream of being able to sit down with a discerner of the times--one who both loves the church and understands the intellectual and spiritual subterranean forces that are shaping the way we live and forging the way we live the Christian life. Reading Discipleship in the Present Tense is the next best thing to this kind of friendly chat. James K. A. Smith in this delightful assortment of essays, critiques, and interviews is a Christian ethnographer helping the church move through the 'hazy space' between faith and culture, the church and the academy, the historical and the traditional. He does this as a committed scholar in the Reformed tradition, but all of us will find what he says extremely helpful."
--Berten A. Waggoner, Former National Director, Vineyard USA
