Great book. I haven't finished, but I love it. The one question I wish someone would cover is what does cultural engagement look like in fields that require some compromise from the get-go? For instance, a pro athlete usually has to miss worship services half the year; a married actor has to kiss women besides his wife; a model has to pose immodestly. The list goes on. I want to ask him: what about the fields that from day one require compromise?

(I'm not using the term "compromise" pejoratively; compromise may be good for all I know).

Welcome to CGO

  • Welcome to Common Grounds Online. Readers of Common Grounds have suggested a website to continue the explorations they began in the book. In keeping with the interactions of Professor MacGregor, Brad, Lauren and Jarrod, the theme of this site is ‘learning and living the Christian story.’

    I have invited friends, and a few friends of friends, to communicate aspects of the Christian story that have been significant in their own lives. We’re all trying to find joy and pleasure in this life and the next, but often we forfeit the joy that could be ours by living out foolish, competing scripts. What distinguishes Common Grounds Online Contributors is not our own goodness, achievement or service, but rather the recognition of our need of God’s grace abounding in our lives.
