"Spiritual Junk Food: The Dumbing Down of Christian Youth is a stinging indictment on the state of educational curricula promoted by leading Christian publishers. This is one of the most important issues facing the Christian church today. Drawing from fifteen years of experience in public education, Cathy Mickels and Audrey McKeever make a convincing case that Christian publishers are marketing shallow, fast-food methods for teaching spiritual truths. The faith of Christian youth is being undermined with theories first espoused by humanist educators, not people interested in sharing the truth of God's righteousness and power. In this well-documented expose, parents are warned that the same worldly, humanistic ideas and activities Christians have fought in our nation's schools have now invaded the church. Straightforward biblical teaching is being traded for relativism, group thinking, and controversial games. Whether it is by teaching Christian youth to hug trees and "think green," role-play aBible passage soap-opera style to simulate the excitement of temptation, or view Steven Speilberg's Raiders of the Lost Ark for a lesson on the Book of Revelation, the authors predict the result will all be the same: the dumbing down of Christian youth.… (more)
