Summary
"In the pages of Gifts Glittering and Poisoned, early Christian voices echo across the centuries to show that the society of the spectacle is not new. Our era resembles a time when the spectacular entertainments of ancient Rome had a profound effect on every aspect of social life. By drawing on the rich theology and witness of early Christianity, Chanon Ross asks what it means for us to live in a new era of empire and spectacle. Through Augustine's description of the demonic, he shows how consumerism constructs a sophisticated symbolic order, a 'society of the spectacle,' that corrupts our deepest longings for God."--Back cover
