Buy from these retailers:


No previous age has ever seen such a dizzying array of media and technology. These things are not simply neutral tools. They shape everything from individuals to institutions. Written with an eye to the challenges facing church leaders, The Hidden Power of Electronic Culture uncovers the subtle secrets of electronic culture and the hidden ways it shapes the gospel, leadership, community, and worship.


At the heart of the book is the question, how do we form people of faith in a media-drenched culture? The answer takes shape as Hipps provides an accessible introduction to the brilliant and sometimes opaque insights of the long forgotten cultural prophet Marshall McLuhan.


Part history, part prophecy, The Hidden Power of Electronic Culture is intended to help church leaders understand and faithfully navigate the perpetual changes in our culture.
