An author of two books about Christianity and Culture, Brett McCracken
leads a discussion on how Christians critically navigate the gray spaces
between legalism and liberty when engaging with the world around them.
Following Brett's morning common chapel, this alternate chapel will give
students a chance to hear about the specific topics of his latest book -
"Gray Matters: Navigating the Space Between Legalism and Liberty." The
goal of the chapel is to equip students to critically engage culture,
particularly the areas of eating, drinking, listening, and watching.
Brett will address the question, "Can there be a healthy, balanced
approach to engaging the things of culture, especially where there are
gray areas?" Brett McCracken is a Los Angeles-based journalist. He is
the author of "Hipster Christianity" and has written for many
publications, including the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post,
books & Culture, Christianity Today, and Relevant. A graduate of
Wheaton College and UCLA, Brett currently works as managing editor for
Biola magazine and teaches journalism at Biola University. His website:
