"By explaining and exposing 'isms' like consumerism, relativism,
nationalism, and post-modern tribalism, Wilkens and Sanford deftly
demonstrate how we too often live according to 'cultural stories'
that compete with the gospel."--Trevin Wax, Christianity Today, May
"A timely call for the integration of confessional beliefs and values with actions makes this book well worth the read."--Ewen Butler, Religious Studies Review, December 2010
"Wilkens and Sanford briefly yet comprehensively explain each worldview's core beliefs. These chapters can be useful as discussion starters about core biblical beliefs and as a tool to learn to critique cultural values."--Rachael Eggebeen, Youth Worker Journal, (www.youthworkerjournal.com), January/February 2010
