In a wake-up call for every believer lulled into thinking there is no room for Christian thought or teaching in the secular world, Briner details pratical ways to penetrate every area of society and replace evil with good.

From the Back Cover

How do 16-year-olds live out their Christian faith in class? Flipping burgers? In youth group?

By being roaring lambs, that's how.

Roaring lambs? They're Christians--your high school students--who leave the Christian ghetto and take the salt of the gospel with them into mainstream culture.

This six-session curriculum shows students how to decompartmentalize their faith--to intentionally bring their faith out of the youth room and let it saturate all aspects of their lives--schools, jobs, friends, romance, home, and more--to be a Christ-follower, rather than merely do Christ-things. With topics like this:

Bleeding Hearts in Bleating Sheep. Unless your love of God is transformed into outward behavior, you're only a bleating sheep instead of a roaring lamb.

Welcome to the Ghetto. Are you in a Christian-programmed culture--a Christian ghetto? Then tear down the walls so you can see the world and the world can see you.

Welcome to the World. You're not in Kansas anymore. Here's the difference between being in the world and being of the world.

The Salt of the Earth. In praise of a high-sodium diet. You're the flavoring and preservative of the world!

Careers 101. Will the real Christians please stand up? Pastors and missionaries are not the only ones who serve God.

The curriculum includes a music CD (produced by Squint Entertainment) of all-new songs from top CCM artists, including Jars of Clay . . . Sixpence None the Richer . . . Burlap to Cashmere . . . Delirious . . . Ashley Cleveland . . . Steven Curtis Chapman . . . Michael W. Smith . . . Ladysmith Black Mambazo . . . Over the Rhine . . . and more.

For youth workers, Sunday school teachers, small-group leaders, camp counselors, DREs, pastors--anyone who wants to help teenage Christians take their faith out of the youth room and into the world. And become roaring lambs.

Inspired by the Bob Briner best-seller Roaring Lambs --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every Christian needs to read this book May 11 2002
Format:Paperback
I read this book for class, and it has changed my life. Briner's book conveys his longing for Christians to no longer be complacent; we need to become roaring lambs for Christ. Although Briner is now in heaven, I believe that he is watching to see who will respond to the question that he posed in Chapter 3: "So who in your local community speaks publicly and forcefully--yet with grace and compassion--for a Christian point of view?" When we Christians do not agree with public figures and the media, we need to offer our own opinions and feelings. Briner encourages us to become active in shaping our culture rather than complain about how others shape it.
As a young adult, I am striving to make that kind of difference both now and when I enter the "real world" in a few years. At my home church, I am preparing to use this book to lead an adult discussion group. I feel that every Christian who reads this book can be led to see the importance of being a roaring lamb in today's secular world.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm Ready to Roar Sept. 24 2001
Format:Paperback
Definitly a well written book that delivers a powerful challenge. If I were to sum this into a short question, it would be this: Who has convinced us that only those called to either the pastorate or the mission fields are the ones who have to make their Christian walk and their profession one and the same? And why is this so? I know my own work in the off-shore oil field is the last place one would expect to be able to combine profession and spirituality. Yet, after reading this book, not only do I feel compelled to do so, I also know it is very much possible. Throughout the book, the theme of "being the salt" continually reoccurs. And for good reason. Briner reminds us not only has Christ commanded us to be this salt, there are very many more reasons for us to take such a position. Without a doubt, this is definitly a must-read for those who are wanting to enhance the impact they have with those they come in contact with. This book will both challenge and inspire you to reach for this type of impact.

"And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.''" (Matthew 28:18-20)
The late Bob Briner's "Roaring Lambs" is a book that should be necessary reading for any Christian seeking to fulfill the Great Commission in contemporary America.
"Roaring Lambs" focuses on our calling to fulfill the Lord's commission; specifically by being salt and light in our culture. Briner firmly but lovingly condemns the "ghetto" that many Christians have created for themselves by withdrawing into their own subculture. He states:
"We feel we are making a difference because we are so important to ourselves. We have created a phenomenal subculture with our own media, entertainment, educational system, and political hierarchy so that we have a sense that we're doing a lot. But what we've really done is create a ghetto that is easily dismissed by the rest of society."
Briner sums up the problem this way: "Culturally, we are lambs. Meek, lowly, easily dismissed cuddly creatures that are fun to watch but never a threat to the status quo."
Thankfully, Briner does not argue that we should mindlessly lob grenades at society from within the safety of the ghetto's walls--far too many do that already. Instead, Briner states that we must engage in the discourse of our culture. Christians must involve themselves in the culture shaping arenas of art, entertainment, the media and education. In short:
"It is time for the lambs to roar.

I have never found a more helpful book than Roaring Lambs in providing a purpose for a Christian who wants to impact the world for Christ. Briner writes to guide and encourage Christian artists who want to impact their contemporaries with God honoring music, theater, art, movies, etc. BUT, he emphasizes sharing your gifts with the world. Do not stay in the cozy, protective Christian sub-culture, but let your peers admire your skill. Venture into your cities and share your performances and creations. Offer an alternative to the world with the gifts God has given you.
If you want a book that adds fire to the protests, boycotts, and score keeping that some Christians partake in.... THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR YOU! This book will show you were Christians have dropped the ball in areas of literature, movies, TV, journalism, etc. AND give you great ideas to change these mediums by asking you to get involved and provide God honoring alternatives.
