Author Interview: Darrell L. Bock

Missio Nexus’ leadership thoughtfully summarize books, giving you the Leader’s Edge to help inform, stimulate and provoke profitable discussion. The Author Interview is an informal conversation with the author to to give you more insight to the book.


This book argues that cultural intelligence requires an understanding of what is happening around us and how to engage these changes well. It seeks to answer these questions in a biblically rooted way: Has the church’s approach to doing battle been effectively define and practiced? Have we missed the exact nature of the battle and misdirected our mission? In answering these questions, the book examines how we got to where we are, considers what Scriptures say about engagement, observes how Paul talked about culture and how he spoke to it, discusses how to have difficult conversations with people who disagree with our worldview, discusses what prevents beneficial conversations and calls for love, and explores two ways to read Scripture so that we engage culture in balance and with respect to how God made us.
