Item Description...
Overview
To minister effectively in a media age, Christians must have an understanding of the culture industries: their content, their methodology and their pervasive influence. The average American spends five to eight hours each day watching TV, listening to the radio and recorded music, and reading magazines and newspapers. How can you complete with a media that constantly saturates our world with non-Christian views and ideals? In Screen Saved, Dan Andriacco defines the dangers of media and provides the tools to make it a powerful ally. Learn how TV, advertising, print and the Internet create and define our culture by embarking on a media "fast." Understand which media can be effective in ministry and which should be left out--and why. Transform your ministry by becoming a medium through which Christ reaches other people.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
must reading on electronic media and Christian living  Jul 18, 2001
In this little book Dan Andriacco brings into concise, accessible form a wide range of research and reflection on electronic media, the culture created by those media, and Christian approaches to living in an electronically mediated culture. Without slipping off the slope on either the side of outright rejection of such media or the side of rampant accomodation to them, Andriacco provides clear guidance for living with electronic media in a thoughtful, faithful, Christian manner. This guidance is rooted in a commitment to "reading" and relating to electronic media through two lenses: the lens of "media literacy" (understanding how and why electronic media work) and the lens of the Christian gospel. When I led a small group in reading and discussing this book we discovered very quickly that theory, theology, and practical suggestions work together in its pages to encourage transformation in the lives of those who read and discuss it. Thoughful reading is helped by questions for reflection at the end of most chapters. Though written primarily for church professionals this book is very accessible to anyone looking for help in living in our electronically mediated world.
