"Thirty years after Neil Postman's Amusing Ourselves to Death, this book takes the impact-analysis of modern media to a new level."
John Piper, Founder and Teacher, desiringGod.org

What images should I feed my eyes?

We often leave this question unanswered-- because we don't ask it. Maybe we don't want to ask it. But viral videos, digital images, and other spectacles surround us in every direction--competing for our time, our attention, our lust, and our money. So we let our lazy eyes feed on whatever comes our way. As a result, we never stop to consider the consequences of our visual diet on our habits, desires, and longings.

Journalist Tony Reinke asked these hard questions himself--critiquing his own habits--and now invites us along to see what he discovered as he investigated the possibilities and the pitfalls of our image-centered world. In the end, he shares the beauty of a Greater Spectacle--capable of centering our souls, filling our hearts, and stabilizing our gaze in this age of the digital spectacle.
