Introducing the Edward Carnell Library (Nine Titles Listed Inside) In Television: Servant or Master?, Carnell develops a balanced approach to this rambunctious new medium of communication. Among his conclusions is the refreshing recognition that the rigid fundamentalist stand against Hollywood moving pictures has suddenly been rendered defunct. Arguing convincingly that all of life is mixture, that nothing natural or human is either wholly good or wholly bad, he stresses that television's future will depend on how human beings sort out its peril and potential. At a time when the wildly popular new medium of television was just beginning to saturate the country, evangelicalism's leading philosopher-theologian of the 1950s and 1960's gave Americans some badly needed biblical and scholarly perspective. --Rudolph Nelson, author of The Making and Unmaking of an Evangelical Mind: The Case of Edward Carnell
