Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"A magnificent and timely book. Fresh, witty, informative, trenchant, and eminently sane, Ken Myers' book is a must for thoughtful evangelicals....I only hope there are enough of them left to read it." (Os Guinness)
"Ken Myers has made an excellent contribution here, dealing not only with the roots of popular culture in social history and philosophy but also with its ultimate impact on character." (Dick Keyes, L'Abri Fellowship)
