Christians are at war with popular culture and the name of the battle is the communication revolution! Where is the battlefield of this new revolution? In every room of our homes, in school classrooms and libraries, in the car when we go on vacation, and anywhere the media can reach. And it's a revolution in which no parent gets to sit on the sidelines! This book is more than just a friendly imploring by the entertainment media, it's an absolute requirement if they are to survive. So, in getting your children to "stay tuned," anything goes. Sex, violence, vulgarity, shock--anything can be used and will be used to get your child to "stay tuned." Once this fundamental fact is understood, the "morality" of the media is easy to grasp--if a message attracts an audience, it's moral! Beware of the invitation to "stay tuned." It's not the equivalent of the clerk at the store kindly asking you to "Please, come back" on another day. It's more akin to the cigarette company controlling nicotine in the cigarette so that you will smoke another day. Media companies, publicly traded and highly leveraged in debt, don't merely want you to come back, they need you to come back and they will do anything in their power to ensure that. In this book, Christian parents are guided through the landmines of the communication revolution and left with practical and biblical suggestions on how to make peace with the media in their homes.
