Fifty Shades of Grey: Is My Church Reading It?

Over at Provoketive Magazine, I wrote a review of the book, “Fifty Shades of Grey.” It’s not purely a review, it’s a look at how and why this book is affecting the culture, especially the church culture. Hopefully, I asked the right questions.

Here’s an excerpt:

Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve seen this book around a lot. I mean, a lot. Not just in the hands of “regular” people. But I’ve heard Christians discussing it. I don’t have any hard and fast statistics to share with you, but I’ve seen and heard enough online and face to face chatter to let me know that Christian people are reading this book. What gives?

So head on over and check it out. Thanks for reading.
