Engage primarily with people then with culture

Tim Chester has just posted another excerpt from his new book, “A Meal with Jesus”.  This quote caught my eye:

“Much is said of engaging with culture. Much that’s right and helpful. But we must never let engaging culture eclipse engaging with people. People are infinitely variable and rarely susceptible to our sociological categories. If you want to understand a person’s worldview, don’t read a book. Talk to them, hang out with them, eat with them.”

You can read the whole thing here.
