The Institute for Faith, Work, and Economics has started a new column called “Books We Like.” Here’s their latest entry. Check these out! Below is Elise Daniel’s recommendation of Robert Barron’s Seeds of the Word: Finding God in Culture. You can read the rest of her recommendations over at IFWE:
In today’s culture, God can seem difficult to detect at times. Father Barron lifts up fragments of truth in film, books, politics, and culture.
Where is God in the Hunger Games script and Bob Dylan lyrics?
What does the hookup culture teach us about God?
Why is everyone crazy about vampires?
Barron answers these questions and more in a compilation of short thought-provoking essays to help Christians appreciate how present God really is in culture.
Seeds of the Word reminds us that God penetrates every corner of culture in subtle ways because the human heart, whether it knows it or not, universally longs for God.
