Addicted to Mediocrity (Revised Edition): Contemporary Christians and the Arts by Franky Schaeffer

<p>In this provocative book, Franky Schaeffer shows how Christians today have sacrificed the artistic prominence they enjoyed for centuries and settled instead for mediocrity. The evidence for this sad state of affairs abounds. We are flooded with Christian doodads, trinkets, t-shirts, bumper stickers, etc., that use Gods name as an advertising slogan--Things Go Better with Jesus--putting the Creator of the universe on the same level as soda pop! Moreover, Schaeffer writes, Whenever Christians, and evangelicals in particular, have attempted to reach the world through the media--TV, film, publishing and so on--the thinking public gets the firm idea that, like soup in a bad restaurant, Christians brains are best left unstirred.</p> <p>But it doesnt have to be this way. Schaeffer shows how Christians who care can begin to reverse the slide toward mediocrity: by demanding excellence in the arts and media, and in all areas of life; by giving our time, talents and money to those things which are worthy of our support and are truly honoring to God; by staying away from the cheap, the shoddy, and the make-a-fast-buck mentality.</p> <p>Schaeffer offers not only an unflinching critique, but specific and practical direction for becoming unaddicted, and for recovering artistic excellence. The punch, humor and satire of the text is effectively enhanced by nineteen original drawings by Chicago artist Kurt Mitchell.</p
