The challenge of living with popular culture may well be as serious for modern Christians as persecution and plagues were for the saints of earlier centuries. Ken Myers explains this claim as he develops a biblical theology of culture, surveys the historical developments that lead from folk culture to mass culture, and examines the ways popular culture encourages restlessness and the pursuit of instant gratification to the detriment of the Church's life. (Crossway Books, 1989)

"In All God's Children and Blue Suede Shoes, Ken Myers looks at the entire phenomenon of popular culture—its roots, assumptions, practices, and effects. The result is a provocative book that shows how our thought, communication, and living have all been affected by popular culture's omnipresence. It should make us take a hard look at what we've accepted as harmless entertainment.
— Ted Prescott, sculptor, past president of Christians in the Visual Arts
