Book Review: We Cannot Be Silent

In his most recent book, Al Mohler, tackles a culture redefining sex.  We Cannot Be Silent (2015) is a thorough, readable book addressing many of the current issues faced by the church in light of the "sexual revolution."  Mohler masterfully traces the history of changes in sexual mores over the past 100 plus years. Today, it often seems that Christians are inordinately focused on homosexuality, a focus that in my opinion is more driven by the media Christianity itself. But Mohler explores the many changes that have occurred leading up to our current cultural climate including the birth control pill and no fault divorce to name a few.  He also addresses some of the most current issues facing the church including how to respond to transgenderism.

The first thing that I like about this book are the extensive question an answer section at the end of the book, that answer questions like "should I attend a gay wedding?" The second was that Mohler rightly reminds the reader that it isn't about homosexuality, or sexual sin, but about believing the gospel.

We Cannot Be Silent is a beneficial read for those wanting to understand the worldview behind the sexual revolution and where it stands today.

I received a free copy of this book from the Book Look Bloggers program in exchange for my review. The viewpoints presented here are my own.
