Playing at Worship

This week, the White Horse Inn featured T. David Gordon, author of Why Johnny Can't Preach and Why Johnny Can't Sing Hymns. Both books are vitally important polemics against the influence of pop culture in the life and worship of God's people.

We live in a world of constant distraction. Not only are we constantly being interrupted by cellphones, email, and text messages, but we're also distracted from thinking and contemplation in a culture of constant entertainment. Joining the panel to discuss this topic is media ecologist, T. David Gordon, author of Why Johnny Can't Preach: The Media Have Shaped The Messengers, and more recently, Why Johnny Can't Sing Hymns: How Pop Culture Rewrote the Hymnal.

Listen HERE.
