newsRead Culture Making online for free

The release of Culture Making is just over two months away. It will be really fun to have the book out there to start lots of conversations about how we can become cultivators and creators of culture, not just critics and consumers of it.

But you don’t have to wait until this summer to start reading the book and to start those conversations. InterVarsity Press has taken the unusual step of releasing, not just the introduction or the first few pages, but the first 40 pages of the book, online, in PDF form, for free. (Yes, they are awesome—and thanks to John Holland for originally suggesting this.) And in a few weeks we’ll release another three chapters.

You can download the PDF from

Read. Enjoy. But there’s one other thing I’d like to ask you to do. Find at least one way to share this PDF with others. Post about it on Facebook. Blog about it. Forward the link—or the whole PDF file—to your small group, your pastor, your six best friends. (Yes, you can do this completely legally—see the last page for the details on what you can and cannot do with this PDF.)

Then, if you don’t mind, post on the wall at the Culture Making Facebook page to tell the rest of us what you thought and what your friends thought of these opening pages.

Bon appétit!

Andy
