There is a great difference in excellency, usefulness, and comfort between people of clear, digested knowledge, and confused, undigested apprehensions. -Richard Baxter

Not ex nihilo, but ex meditatio

Some eschew culture as best they can.  Some adopt it wholesale.  Some seek to overhaul the culture. Some take a more considered approach to what of culture they partake in and what of culture they avoid.

What about “making culture” as a perhaps better approach for Christians in their attempt to live “in,” but not “of” the world?

Andy Crouch has a new book, just released this week, entitled, “Making Culture.”

Here’s the website.  For those of you who have grown tired either of trying to keep up with the culture, outstrip the culture, or give into the culture, making culture as Crouch defines it is perhaps in order.

God alone makes things from nothing; but He has created us with a capacity to create at least out of a meditative musing on what is good, excellent, praiseworthy, and enduring.
