Book Summary of Culture Making by Andy Crouch


Culture is all around us. We often talk about the culture as if it is a static, concrete set of rules, standards, traditions, etc. However, culture is far more encompassing than what a certain group of people do at a certain time.

Rather than critique, copy, or consume culture, Christians are called to make culture. As people made in God’s image, we reflect the glory of God — the greatest culture maker. The big picture of Scripture gives us a picture of God’s great, culture-transforming redemption.

As we live in light of the gospel and the transformation that God has worked in us, we humbly recognize our reliance on God in our efforts to impact the culture around us. Using the cultural power, communities, and grace God has given, we serve and steward all that God has given.

Culture making is our calling. Our aim is to make something that lasts beyond our rural communities and cities into the Holy City, the New Jerusalem. This is what it means to glorify God in all that we say and do. No small changes in the cultures around us are in vain!
