I think that some Christians are afraid of being too critical of conventional cultural trends out of a fear of being (or being perceived to be) legalistic, says Ken Myers. But, as he later points out, "Endorsing a cultural trend is no less a judgment than criticizing it."

Everyday Christians are endorsing cultural trends both good and bad without realizing it. This 48-page resource is designed to help churches see and resist the values of our culture that do not honor God. Eugene Peterson, Ken Myers, and others offer keen insights on a variety of issues, including generational splits, consumerism, authenticity, meals, time management, and sleep.
