Can anyone suggest some books that are current that talk about how our culture is more and more at odds with a biblical worldview?

I liked reading Russel Moore's Onward--https://ebooks.faithlife.com/products/53630/onward-engaging-the-culture-without-losing-the-gospel 

Albert Mohler is another author that often deals with the issues of biblical worldview and culture. For example, this one: https://ebooks.faithlife.com/products/52686/we-cannot-be-silent-speaking-truth-to-a-culture-redefining-sex-marriage-and-the-very-meaning-of-right-and-wrong

Mr Milkman (and don't review possible ways to kill me), but I'd argue just the opposite ... the recent culture is moving closer to the teachings of both the prophets, and Jesus. If you list them out.

The problem is that Christianity is fixated on hot-sins ... that primarily involve 'not-us' (a fairly small minority of humans). The sins that the prophets spoke to, and Jesus amplified are now strongly frowned on in 'the culture', and PC'd by the Christians. No one's a pastor logic. How ironic.

But to return to mother-Logos, simply list out the threats from the prophets, and Jesus. Doesn't take long, and keep a count. Gehenna is hotter than global warming (just to illustrate).

Pagans and Christians in the City by Steven D. Smith

A Secular Age by Charles Taylor

For something approaching the angle Denis has in mind (though probably not agreeing with her take on it Wink): 

The Quest for Cosmic Justice by Thomas Sowell

Discrimination and Disparities by Thomas Sowell

The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion by Jonathan Haidt (This tries to be more balanced in its take)

I laughed so hard when I read this.  Then I wept that anyone would believe this. 

Revelation 21:8 (LEB)

8 But as for the cowards and unbelievers and detestable persons and murderers and sexually immoral people and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their share is in the lake that burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death.

Revelation 22:15 (LEB)

15 Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the sexually immoral people and the murderers and the idolaters and everyone who loves and who practices falsehood.

1 Corinthians 6:9–10 (LEB)

9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! Neither sexually immoral people, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor passive homosexual partners, nor dominant homosexual partners, 10 nor thieves, nor greedy persons, not drunkards, not abusive persons, not swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

But now back to Mother Logos...
