I know of no other book that explains so clearly, with so lively a pen, and with such economy the various intellectual currents that are now disturbing our cultural peace.
What is even rarer is that the author grinds no axes, treating both sides of the culture wars with thoughtful charity and a deeply Christian intelligence.
Woke has important things to say and it does so in a highly readable manner.
―Nigel Biggar, Ph.D., Regius Professor Emeritus of Moral Theology, University of Oxford
A brief and balanced introduction and response to the culture of "woke" for busy people.

Prof. John Stackhouse
Speaker, Author & Public Scholar
Holding a Ph.D. in history and theology from The University of Chicago, he has published a dozen books and lectures at universities around the world.
His work has been featured by many media, such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Times Literary Supplement. He has appeared on national television and radio networks in the United States, Canada, and Australia.
Professor Stackhouse has addressed audiences as varied as the Young Presidents Organization, the Kirby Laing Centre at Cambridge University, the Christian Medical and Dental Society, the Conservative Party of Canada, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, Christians for Biblical Equality, and the Alberta Teachers Association.
He has also rendered expert testimony to the British Columbia Supreme Court,
the Manitoba Human Rights Commission, and the Canada Revenue Agency. He is a sought-after consultant with CEOs, physicians, industry leaders, pastors, lawyers, and politicians around the globe on culture, strategy, and ethics.
There is no substitute for common sense and Stackhouse brims with it as this book testifies. It is a dangerous time. All the more reason to value this book.
