Opie Doesn't Live Here Anymore: Where Faith, Family, and Culture Collide by Walt Mueller
We may long for what we remember as a simpler existence. But the innocence of Mayberry never existed. Everything in our culture is changing. Too often, Christís followers respond by throwing up their hands in despair, withdrawing form the world, and thus forfeiting their influence. But that isnít how Jesus called us to live Ė he wants us to engage our culture and bring his impact on it.
In this collection of blogs and essays, cultural and media analyst Dr. Walt Mueller wrestles with what it means for Godís people and the world to meet. Opie Doesnít Live Here Anymore will help you and your family embrace the collision of faith and culture.
