Are you Visigoth or an Athenian?

This interesting question is even more interesting when it is being asked by Neil Postman, author of Amusing Ourselves to Death.

Take the time to read these fleeting 85 sentences by Mr. Postman, and get your week off to a great start.

Thank you, Adam Walter, for sharing the link!

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    That was truly interesting. What is so depressing though, is how many people involved in the cultural “industry” have firmly aligned themselves on the side of the Visigoths.
