Brett McCracken wrote a great piece on what it means to be a “cultured Christian” over at Q Ideas, and just put out what looks to be a great book, Gray Matters, that deals with Christian consumption of culture. Trevin Wax from The Gospel Coalition asks McCracken whether all of this can slide into an excuse for unfettered worldliness or uncharitable snobbery. Because navigating the fine line between legalism and license is what CaPC strives for, these questions (and answers) are worth a look.
