[Solved] Why I would rather spend the evening with Bill Moyers; John Campbell The Power of Myth

In this paper, you are required to present a review report on John Campbell’s series “The Power of Myth”. You are required to answer why would you rather spend the evening the Bill Moyers who is an experienced journalist and is encompassed of many examples from mythology of the world and religion.  

John Campbell’s series The Power of Myth involves a diverse dialogue with an experienced journalist Bill Moyers and is encompassed of many examples from mythology of the world and religion.

Moyers differs with Campbell’s argument and consequently states that some myths are backward and cannot be accommodated in the current modern society.

Personally, I prefer Bill Moyers arguments as he constantly disagrees with Campbell mythic arguments. For example, Campbell argues that some myths such as the biblical plot of God are unfounded. Campbell argues that that mythical concept does not conform to this world and belong to some other world. I purely disagree with Campbell and consequently support Moyers who sticks to the mythical appreciation of the God of Christians. Campbell is observed to constantly blaspheme God and I may not feel comfortable spending evening with him.  Campbell embraces the transtheological view of myths and opposes the mythic understanding of existence of an unidentifiable and undefined source of power.

Oh my god! This writing company has saved me from so many bothering and figured out my problem in the best way possible. I am not fond of reading and when this book review was given to me as part of my coursework, I went into depression. But I must say, my writer came up with an amazing book review covering all the major aspects of the book nicely. I am waiting for other assignments to come so that I would come here again. The place is good and quite reasonable as well which makes it easy for me to manage my budget.
