How should you read a newspaper?

What is the purpose and place of sports in Christian life?

How can you decide what to watch on TV?

Are computer games "dangerous"?

Is there a Christian way to use humor?

Christians often profess that Jesus is Lord over all of life. Yet it isn't always easy to relate Christianity to your day-to-day activities and concerns--especially amid the challenges and confusion of popular culture!

R. Paul Stevens and Robert Banks, editors of The Complete Book of Everyday Christianity on which this Everyday Faith eSeries title is based, believe Christian truth is for the routines and not just the crises of life. From computer games and sports to newspapers and music, their collection of eighteen thought-provoking essays will guide you in bringing your faith to bear on issues of popular culture.

Whether you read from beginning to end or dip into the articles that interest you most, you'll gain insight on how Christian faith can guide, illuminate and energize your daily life.
