Chasing Elephants - Brent Crowe

Subtitle - Wrestling with the gray areas of life. In this book, the author attempts to tackle the gray areas through a Biblical worldview and perspective. The author is speaker and Vice President of Student Leadership University. Topics such as social drinking, social networking, the internet, and entertainment are each given chapters and a thorough explanation from a Biblical perspective.
A lot of Christians have strong views on both sides of each issue, and Mr. Crowe seems to accept that he does not have all the answers to all the questions we might ask about these issues. I particularly enjoyed his explanation of liberty and responsibility and our freedom as Christians.  This is a well researched and documented book and it's clear the author has spent a lot of time picking these particular issues and deciding what to say about them.
Although you or I may not agree on the same gray areas of life, this is still a book worth considering reading. This book does what a good book should do, gets you to thinking to form your own opinion on the subjects.The author simply states his opinions and lets the reader decide on his own.
I was provided a copy of this book at no charge from Navpress.
