A classic examination of popular culture that helps Christians live conscientiously ;in the world, but not of it. ; Every generation of Christians faces unique challenges. The first-century church had Caesar's lions and the Colosseum. And, while it might seem like an extreme assertion to compare the two, Ken Myers points out that the challenge of living with popular culture may well be as serious as the persecution of the early saints. The erosion of character, the spoiling of innocent pleasures, and the cheapening of life itself are all afflictions of a silent enemy that strikes subtly and unexpectedly. Like a frog stuck in a pot well on it's way to a boil, we cannot afford to be indifferent about our culture. Neither escaping nor condemning popular culture, Myers works to understandit. Exploring historical origins and biblical teaching on the complex subject, Myers helps us think critically about how popular culture affects our perceptions of reality. This book encourages a culture of transcendencewithin the church that enables us to engage without conforming to popular culture.
