Track: Navigating Culture: A Student's Guide to Navigating Culture
Author: Walt Mueller

We all belong to a culture. From the shows we watch to the language we use to the food we eat; culture shapes the way we look at the world, the way we act, the way we think. It affects so much of our lives, and yet we are rarely aware of it. If we are not careful, it can push us away from God’s good desires for who we are and how we live in our world.

This short, helpful book from the Track series encourages young adults to think about what it means to live in the culture but to follow God’s ways rather than the ways of the world.

Walt Mueller begins by explaining what culture is, how it affects the way we see the world, and how we can be aware of the differences between what God teaches in His Word and what our culture says is true. He then covers a couple of big issues that young people face where there is a stark difference between biblical truth and wisdom, and the way our friends might see things.

The Cost of Discipleship
Author: Dietrich Bonhoeffer

One of the most important theologians of the twentieth century illuminates the relationship between ourselves and the teachings of Jesus

What can the call to discipleship, the adherence to the word of Jesus, mean today to the businessman, the soldier, the laborer, or the aristocrat? What did Jesus mean to say to us? What is his will for us today? Drawing on the Sermon on the Mount, Dietrich Bonhoeffer answers these timeless questions by providing a seminal reading of the dichotomy between "cheap grace" and "costly grace." "Cheap grace," Bonhoeffer wrote, "is the grace we bestow on ourselves...grace without discipleship....Costly grace is the gospel which must be sought again and again, the girl which must be asked for, the door at which a man must know....It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life."

The Cost of Discipleship is a compelling statement of the demands of sacrifice and ethical consistency from a man whose life and thought were exemplary articulations of a new type of leadership inspired by the Gospel, and imbued with the spirit of Christian humanism and a creative sense of civic duty.
