Brian Hand provides wise counsel for entertainment choices in Upright Downtime
. From sports to movies to hobbies, Americans must evaluate multiple entertainment options. Libertines insist that all entertainment is neutral or good; ascetics insist that most, if not all, is evil.
Hand provides a balanced biblical theology of entertainment. He shows entertainment’s dangers, its purposes, and its place in a biblical theology of humanity. He also measures his criteria by a reading of Ecclesiastes and evaluates television as a test case. Essential for parents and educators. Part of Biblical Discernment for Difficult Issues, a series from Bob Jones University Seminary.More author information
