Hipster Christianity
Categories | God and Culture

In this probing book, insider twentysomething Christian journalist Brett McCracken examines an emerging category he calls "Christian hipsters"--an unlikely fusion of the American obsession with being "cool" and the realities of a faith that is often seen as anything but. His insightful analysis explores what they're about, why they exist, and what it all means for Christianity and the church's relevancy in our youth-oriented culture.

Brett McCracken is a graduate of Wheaton College and UCLA. His day job is managing editor for Biola University's Biola magazine. He regularly writes movie reviews and features for Christianity Today, as well as contributing frequently to Relevant magazine. He comments on movies, media, and popular culture issues at his blog, The Search, http://stillsearching.wordpress.com/. He lives in Los Angeles.

I finished Brett McCracken's forthcoming book Hipster Christianity: When Church and Cool Collide a few days ago and decided to sit on it and let it steep for a few days. I needed some time to think about what Mr. McCracken was saying and whether I agreed with it or not.

"Are you tired of seeing Christianity marketed as a product? Brett McCracken offers a smart and timely peek inside our desperate quest to be cool. Hipster Christianity is an urgent but loving call to chase far more than the fashionable, to pursue enduring virtues rather than mere relevance."--Craig Detweiler, Center for Entertainment, Media and Culture, Pepperdine University
