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.

Endorsements & Reviews-
"Edward John Carnell was--in my estimation--the brightest and the best of the neo-evangelical leaders. He was a courageous thinker who was not afraid to think new thoughts in the service of biblical orthodoxy. The Carnell Library is a gift to today's evangelical movement."
--Richard J. Mouw President, Fuller Seminary
"[Carnell's] fertile mind and ready pen blazed fresh theological trails as he sought to defend and proclaim the Christian faith as a world and life view."
--Dr. David Allan Hubbard Former President of Fuller Theological Seminary
