Why Christians Should Avoid Great Books Like the Plague

An interesting article was penned this fall titled "People of the Screen." The author, Christine Rosen, editor of The New Atlantis, opines on the diminished role of reading books for pleasure. The advent of computers and the internet has taught a generation of children to seek information online instead of on the page and several studies indicate the result is a lack of concentration and interaction with the values and worldview of the author. One national study found that nearly half of Americans ages 18 to 24 read no books for pleasure. Rosen suggests this is to our individual and collective detriment. You're invited to read the entire article here. This month's article tackles the same issue but from a tongue-in-cheek perspective. Enjoy!...
