Treasuring Christ in the Media Age 

What images should I feed my eyes?

We often leave this question unanswered –  because we don’t ask it.  Maybe we don’t want to ask it.  But viral videos, digital images, and other spectacles surround us in every direction – competing for our time, our attention, our lust, and our money.  So we let our lazy eyes feed on whatever comes our way.  As a result, we never stop to consider the consequences of our visual diet on our habits, desires, and longings.

Journalist Tony Reinke asked these hard questions himself – critiquing his own habits – and now invites us along to see what he discovered as he investigated the possibilities and the pitfalls of our image-centered world.  In the end, he shares the beauty of a Greater Spectacle – capable of centering our souls, filling our hearts, and stabilizing our gaze in this age of the digital spectacle.

“Thirty years after Neil Postman’s Amusing Ourselves to Death, this book takes the impact-analysis of modern media to a new level.”  ~ John Piper, Founder and Teacher,
