A diverse, knowledgeable group of evangelical scholars and journalists here examine the history, as well as the philosophical and theological underpinnings, of the complex love-hate relationship between the mass media and evangelical Christians. Their essays discuss book and magazine publishing, popular music, and broadcasting. A common theme is that evangelicals, dazzled by media possibilities, often confuse means with ends, failing to utilize the media effectively in their mission to evangelize the whole world. The section of essays on televangelism is particularly thought-provoking. The reader will find no smug self-satisfaction in this interesting and, in many ways, groundbreaking collection.- Richard S. Watts, San Bernar dino Cty. Lib., Cal.
