Frank Peretti has a lot to say on the subject of vanity in this pair of lectures from the late 1980’s. I listened to them years ago and even though they are a bit dated in their subject matter they are still very descriptive of the slide from moral relativism and materialism to complete narcissism. He also brings a lot of humor to the subject of vanity.
The past 30 years have brought us more revelation into the sickness of vanity and of our self-absorbed culture. It’s only become worse as we have devised new ways to ignore God’s voice and His working in our lives.
