A recent motion picture release, “The Greatest Showman” features the early history of P.T. Barnum. Last year, the Barnum and Bailey Circus shut down after 146 years. We take a look at the history of circuses, zoos, and wholesome entertainment in America. Then, we look at how it degraded quickly in the 1920s and 1930s. Here is an analysis for Christians on what constitutes good family entertainment. Is amusement biblical? Is entertainment a good use of your time?

This program includes:

1. Generations with Kevin Swanson

2. The World View in 5 Minutes with Adam McManus (Special Report: Chinese Crackdown on Christmas Celebrations, Andy Savage's Book Deal Cancelled, Art Rorheim, Co-founder of AWANA Passes Away)
