Years ago a friend gave me his copy of a book he had to read as a part of a class he was taking as a student at Liberty University. The book was Amusing Ourselves to Death by Neil Postman. Little did I know when he handed me a book being used at LU that it would have the impact on me that it did. The book has found a place in my “Top Ten” and I highly recommend it to you.
Imagine my excitement when I learned that there was going to be a panel discussion at SBTS regarding this book! As usual I did not think the discussion went deep enough and I certainly did not agree with every point or understanding of Postman’s argument. There also seems to be an assumption that the viewers have already read the book. It is nevertheless worth a watch! The selection of panelists was in my opinion rather brilliant. Enjoy! (If you find the thought, behavior, voice, and even appearance of our librarian to be eerily similar to those of TurretinFan you are not alone, but it’s definitely not him…or is it?)
