The Christian and Suburbia

August 6, 2008 — 2 Comments
For quite some time I’ve wrestled with what it means to be a Follower of Jesus living in suburbia. I’ve preached series on it, dialogued with other staff about it, heck, even the title of my blog touches upon the idea of trying to follow Christ in a culture given to consumerism (which, if anything, describes suburbia. See my inaugural post).

However, I’m not sure I’ve discovered a lot of answers as much as I’ve generated more questions. That’s why I’m excited to begin reading Albert Hsu’s (pronounced “Shee”) The Suburban Christian. I’ve had friends recommend this book and can’t wait to see if it will give me greater insight into how we can better make disciples of those living in the suburbs. Stay tuned.
