This is Worth Your Time

Do not, do not, do not, miss Carl Trueman’s article, “American Idolatry”. It is a penetrating analysis of Western culture using American Idol as an example. Trueman does not pronounce a blanket condemnation of everyone who watches the show (in fact, he confesses that it often airs in his own household), but he does offer an intelligent Christian perspective on what often drives both the contestants and the viewers.

    Good article. I reread “The Denial of Death” by Ernest Becker last week, and he actually writes in depth about these very issues: narcissism, the compulsive drive for heroism, illusions of grandeur, and a great deal of worthwhile commentary on various psychologists’ perspectives of neurosis and depravity.
