Description

It's a stereotype that is commonly propagated:  guys in their mid-twenties, living in their parents' basements, playing video games.  This trope suggests that young men are increasingly trading their real lives for virtual lives and, in the process, escaping from their God-given responsibilities to lead within families, the work place, church, and the community.

Is this stereotype legitimate?

In today's Kingdom Culture Conversation, we talk with Ethan Burson, a middle school Bible teacher at Northwest Christian School.  Ethan is also the coach of the Northwest Christian High School eSports team.  As part of the the Arizona Interscholastic Association, Northwest Christian's eSports team competes against other high school throughout the state within games like Super Smash Bros., Rocket League, Overwatch, and others.

In an important Kingdom Culture Conversation, pertaining to the context of video gaming culture, we discuss a recent book by Hanna Rosin called "The End of Men" in which the author suggests that this stereotype just scratches the surface of the issue.

"Kingdom Culture Conversations" is a podcast created through Frameworks, a Biblical worldview initiative of Northwest Christian School.
