Product Description

Every generation faces unique challenges. In All God's Children and Blue Suede Shoes cultural expert Ken Myers helps us to engage pop culture from a historical and experiential perspective so that we can live in it with wisdom and discernment.

The first-century Church had Caesar's lions and the Colosseum. And, while it might seem like an unlikely comparison, the challenge of living with popular culture may well be as serious as persecution was for the saints of old.

Today we witness the tremendous power of pop culture to set the pace and priorities of our lives. We simply cannot afford to be indifferent about culture's influence-nor can we escape it, glibly condemn it, or Christianize it. Cultural expert Ken Myers helps us to engage pop culture from a historical and experiential perspective so that we can live in it with wisdom and discernment.

Publisher's Description

Skillfully analyzes American popular culture, tracing its development and influence throughout history, and ultimately exposes its impact on character. Part of the Turning Point Christian Worldview series.

Author Bio

KENNETH A. MYERS is director of Mars Hill Audio, an organization devoted to helping Christians think wisely about modern culture through a variety of audio resources. Prior to that, he was a producer and editor for National Public Radio and the executive editor of Eternity magazine. Myers is a graduate of the University of Maryland and of Westminster Theological Seminary. He is married and has two children, and lives in central Virginia. 

Marvin Olasky (PhD, American Culture, University of Michigan) is the editor-in-chief of World Magazine. He has been interviewed numerous times by the national media as the developer of the concepts of compassionate conservatism and biblically objective journalism and is the author of twenty books.

Endorsements

A magnificent and timely book. Fresh, witty, informative, trenchant, and eminently sane, Ken Myers's book is a must for thoughtful evangelicals...I only hope there are enough of them left to read it.
-Os Guinness,
cofounder, The Trinity Forum; author, The Dust of Death and The Last Christian on Earth

In All God's Children and Blue Suede Shoes Ken Myers looks at the entire phenomenon of popular cultureĀ–its roots, assumptions, practices, and effects. The result is a provocative book that shows how our thought, communication, and living have all been affected by popular culture's omnipresence. It should make us take a hard look at what we've accepted as harmless entertainment.
-Ted Prescott,
Sculptor, former president of Christians in the Visual Arts
