“We Cannot Be Silent,” by Albert Mohler

I recently had the chance to read We Cannot Be Silent: Speaking Truth to a Culture Redefining Sex, Marriage, and the Very Meaning of Right and Wrong, by Dr. Albert Mohler, Jr. This nonfiction book was released October 27, 2015 by Thomas Nelson.

About this book (from the back cover):

Twenty years ago, not one nation on earth had legal same-sex marriage. Now, access to same-sex marriage is increasingly seen as a basic human right. In a matter of less than a generation, western cultures have experienced a moral revolution.

Dr. R. Albert Mohler examines how this transformation occurred, revealing the underlying cultural shifts behind this revolution: the acceptance of divorce culture, liberation of sex from reproduction, the prevalence of heterosexual cohabitation, the normalization of homosexuality, and the rise of the transgender movement. He then offers a deep look at how the Bible and Christian moral tradition provide a comprehensive understanding upon which Christians can build their personal lives, their marriages, church ministry, and cultural engagement.

Dr. Mohler helps Christians in their understanding of the underlying issues of this significant cultural shift and how to face the challenge of believing faithfully, living faithfully, and engaging the culture faithfully in light of this massive change.

My Verdict:

My husband studied under Dr. Mohler in seminary, and I have always been impressed with him. Whether you agree with him or not, you have to appreciate that he has a brilliant mind and well-researched opinions! Dr. Mohler had a reputation in seminary as being a man who needed very little sleep, rather, he spends most of his evening hours reading most of the major world news publications as well as scholarly research. He argues from the position of a man who believes in the inerrancy of the Bible, and he is very logical in his opinions. This is not only a good read for evangelical Christians, but I think it would also be a good read for someone who completely disagrees with him, just to get a very well-researched idea of opposing viewpoints.
