Description
Dan Quayle versus Murphy Brown.Madonna and MTV.Pulp Fiction.Gangsta rap.V-chip legislation.Entertainment has long been a source of controversy in American life. It may be, as one prominent magazine has noted, "the ultimate instance of American mixed feelings." On the one hand, American popular culture is enormously desired, captivating audiences around the world. On the other hand, more and more critics blame it for the breakdown of morals and even civilization itself.The debates over entertainment are especially volatile because they include not only controversial subjects such as sex and violence, but religion as well. Surely Christians and other religious citizens have important things to contribute to what is, after all, a discussion of morality. But too often their contributions have been ill-informed, unreflective and reactionary.In his latest book, William Romanowski brings something desperately needed to the discussion: an informed, systematic and challenging Christian perspective. Comprehensive and historically revealing, Pop Culture Wars bids to accomplish nothing less than reframe and render more constructive a crucial but angry cultural debate.
