Television. A vital part of modern life? A factor in our moral decline? Or simply chewing gum for the eyes? In this interesting study, Nick Pollard explores what it means to become more like Jesus in a high-tech, media-saturated world.
Rather than condemn TV as a bad influence or dismiss it as harmless, lt;emgt;Get More Like Jesus while Watching TVlt;emgt; argues that the way we watch TV matters as much as what we watch. Using illustrations from current and recent television programs, the Damaris team members demonstrate how our TV viewing can actually help us to become more like Jesus and more effective at telling others about him. Using a framework from Romans 12, this book consists of eight chapters which use popular programs to encourage the reader to deepen their relationships with God. There are also four study guides based on programs such as lt;emgt;The Officelt;emgt; and lt;emgt;Friendslt;emgt;.
Nick Pollard is the cofounder and International Director of Damaris. He is an accomplished author speaker and broadcaster. He has written 6 books, appeared on many radio and TV programs, and has spoken in countless venues across the world.
