Are you a Christian hipster?

by

We assume, of course, that Cafe visitors are, by definition, Christian hipsters. But if you are uncertain whether you belong to this group, contemplate this item from Brett McCracken at the blog Still Searching:

Christian hipsters like music, movies, and books that are well-respected by their respective artistic communities—Christian or not. … They tend to be fans of any number of the following authors: Flannery O’Connor, Walker Percy, Wendell Berry, Thomas Merton, John Howard Yoder, Walter Brueggemann, N.T. Wright, Brennan Manning, Eugene Peterson, Anne Lamott, C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, Henri Nouwen, Soren Kierkegaard, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Annie Dillard, Marilynne Robison, Chuck Klosterman, David Sedaris, or anything ancient and/or philosophically important.

  1. I can't be hip. Never was able to understand Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.

  2. It may have taken 40 something years, but just in time for my 30-year high school reunion, I'm hip! I'm hip! Thank God almighty I'm hip at last!
