A Few Thoughts and a Number of Cool New Discoveries

Tim Berroth, of Kaleo Fellowship, writes a review of the book American Jesus for this month’s issue of Next-Wave Magazine. It’s a new book by Stephen Prothero released this past September. The review is my first exposure to the book and it certainly has wet my appetite for further reading.

I wrote an article for this same issue of Next-Wave titled Impartational Mentors which Rex Miller, the author of The Millennial Matrix contributed to. Somehow his name wasn't credited. Sorry about that Rex. Maybe some one from Next-Wave will read this post and make the correction.

Andrew Jones <TallSkinny Kiwi.com> has a post on his weblog that quotes Douglas Rushkoff and provides an interesting thought from a piece Rushkoff authored. If one follows the link Andrew provides deep enough you’ll be led to Rushkoff’s blog, which is an interesting work. If you’re not familiar with Douglas Rushkoff his bio says he analyzes, writes and speaks about the way people, cultures, and institutions create, share, and influence each other's values. He sees "media" as the landscape where this interaction takes place, and "literacy" as the ability to participate consciously in it.

Many of you might be familiar with his award-winning Frontline documentary "The Merchants of Cool" which was one of the most watched and most talked about documentaries of the year.
