Christians and Popular Culture
Where did popular culture come from? Why is it the way it is? How does it influence Americans in general and Christians in particular? Ken Myers offers fascinating answers. He sees pop culture as a culture of diversion, preventing people from asking questions about their origin and destiny and about the meaning of life. Two aspects stand out: a quest for novelty and a desire for instant gratification. In addition, this culture offers something very appealing: the illusion that we set our own standards, are the master of our fate, deserve a break, and are worth it.
