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 provides fascinating answers to these questions. 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 you set your own standards, you can choose, you are the master of your fate, you deserve a break, you’re worth it.

“A magnificent and timely book. Fresh, witty, informative, trenchant, and eminently sane, Ken Myers’s book is a must for thoughtful evangelicals… I only hope there are enough of them left to read it.”
Os Guinness, cofounder, The Trinity Forum; author, The Call

“In All God’s Children and Blue Suede Shoes Ken Myers looks at the entire phenomenon of popular culture–its roots, assumptions, practices, and effects. The result is a provocative book that shows how our thought, communication, and living have all been affected by popular culture’s omnipresence. It should make us take a hard look at what we’ve accepted as harmless entertainment.”
Ted Prescott, Sculptor, former president of Christians in the Visual Arts

“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
