What happens when media and politics become forms of entertainment? As our world begins to look more and more like Orwell's 1984, Neil's Postman's essential guide to the modern media is more relevant than ever. "It's unlikely that Trump has ever read Amusing Ourselves to Death, but his ascent would not have surprised Postman.” -CNN Originally published in 1985, Neil Postman’s groundbreaking polemic about the corrosive effects of television on our politics and public discourse has been hailed as a twenty-first-century book published in the twentieth century. Now, with television joined by more sophisticated electronic media—from the Internet to cell phones to DVDs—it has taken on even greater significance. Amusing Ourselves to Death is a prophetic look at what happens when politics, journalism, education, and even religion become subject to the demands of entertainment. It is also a blueprint for regaining control of our media, so that they can serve our highest goals. “A brilliant, powerful, and important book. This is an indictment that Postman has laid down and, so far as I can see, an irrefutable one.” –Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World

In this day and age, people often define their religious truths in black and white. Comforting, sure, but how to apply such absolutes in a concrete, meaningful way to everyday life? In this sermon series, Dr. Chuck Simmons asks the Christian reader to consider that God – and therefore truth – lies in the muddle of that everyday life. His compilation explores the very human concepts of patience, doubt, forgiveness, cynicism, wonder, and hope. Followers of Jesus Christ will want to chew on Simmons’ words, each chapter calling on them to reevaluate and reaffirm their beliefs as they walk their muddled path through a life of faith and love.

What constitutes the good life and authentic Christian leadership in a high-speed technological society geared to perpetual economic growth? In a world of rapid change and heightened risks, how do we move beyond the tyranny of emergency and polarization toward a politics of engagement and time oriented to the long-term common good? Taking up key themes in the social teaching of Popes Benedict XVI and Francis, Sustainable Abundance for All argues that life in a risky, runaway world requires new forms of Christian praxis that are both forward-looking and rooted in tradition. Among the issues addressed are pathways toward sustainable development in the Anthropocene, automation and the transition to post-jobs society, the proactionary-precautionary debate over new technologies, and the dangers of becoming "people of the device." Sustainable Abundance for All lays the groundwork for new kinds of Christian social action and prophetic witness in the twenty-first century.
