Product Description

Sex. Graphic killings. Profanity. Adultery. Flip on the television, head for the movie theater, or open a newspaper and you can't get away from it. How do you raise a family in a world supersaturated with media extolling toxic values that are not your own? Media critic Dr. Ted Baehr and legendary entertainer Pat Boone draw from their own extensive experiences and interviews with experts to help readers understand the power of the media and its influence on families. They also examine the ongoing threats to family values by those in the media who promote a humanistic worldview. Media consumers are challenged to understand their own worldviews, make wise choices and are given the information they need to do so. Baehr and Boone also look at the progress that has been made in family values programming in Hollywood, and offer hope for the future.

    I am only half way through this book and I have read enough to know that EVERY FAMILY IN NORTH AMERICA needs to not only read this book, but take it's content VERY seriously! The author of this book does such a great job of bringing to the forefront the seriousness of the movies, television and media that our society is unreservedly shoving down our throats and our kids throats. I loved reading about his background as he is not someone who was raised in a 'Christian' home and is just preaching about all the do's and don'ts that often puts people off... he has seen it all, raised in Hollywood and has done an excellent job of researching not just media but the human brain and how it is affected at every age by all the garbage that we put in it! Read this book... and don't keep it to yourself, PASS IT ALONG!!!
