Why Johnny Can't Preach

by T. David Gordon

Johnny watches too much TV. Well, that’s the short version anyway. Gordon draws from the media theories of Marshall McLuhan and Walter Ong to point out that we are shaped not just by what we consume, but how we consume it. Growing up in the age of television and the internet, we’re increasingly less prepared to attend deeply to the God’s work as literature and text. Gordon makes a convincing case, even if his final diagnosis—read more poetry—is somewhat lacking.
