Sinossi

Somehow, it’s hard to picture pop culture and Christianity going hand-in-hand, but maybe we simply aren't looking at things the right way. All You Want to Know About the Bible in Pop Culture reveals places where readers may be surprised to find redeeming values and gospel messages in today’s movies, music, popular TV shows, and much more!

When you look closely, past the outrageous outfits and the antics of teen pop-sensations, it’s easy to see that from the big screen to the small screen and right down to the radio waves, God and His stories are still prevalent in pop culture today. There are movies and television shows that speak eternal truth, reality show families who represent believers well, even fictional Christians portrayed in a positive light. And if you listen closely, musicians are still conversing with God as the original songwriters of the Bible did. For the reader searching for meaning in media today, All You Want to Know About the Bible in Pop Culture is the perfect choice. 

Features include:

 

  • Fun Bible-based facts and trivia questions
  • Examples of biblical messages from current TV shows, films, and pop songs
  • A casual and engaging resource

Kevin gives a different perspective regarding things we as Christians generally look at as purely secular. This is a great resource in relating to children and others who are immersed in TV shows, movies, and other avenues of popular culture. It was interesting to see how Kevin managed to find Jesus in unique ways and places. I will continue to go back to this book for ideas in pointing others to Jesus through pop culture. I liked the fact that it wasn't "preachy," but was written in a lighter way to show the necessary points. Very interesting perspective on a critical subject for our time.

Di Clinton R Loy - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This book has been a fun and enjoyable book for my family. Thought provoking and gospel engaging conversation have begun to spring up in many of the shows we watch and activities we do together. I have been surprised by some facts, yet encouraged that God is always in the business of redeeming us all the time. As an older mom and reader, this book has helped me "understand" pop culture through the lens of the gospel in a brilliant new way. I want to avoid the pitfall of the secularization and the gradual weakening it is having on the church and in the lives of believers, yet be relevant such a way that the lost come the saving grace of Jesus. This book is a great tool for gospel conversation and living transformed live in a fallen world!

4.0 su 5 stelle A Short But Thoughtful Work 25 marzo 2015
Di Nathan Albright - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
[Note: This book was provided free of charge by BookLook/Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for an honest review.]

At the heart of this book there is an identity crisis. The author has written a breezy and lighthearted book, only about 150 pages in the main text, filled with lots of sidebars, humorous jokes, silly quizzes about the Bible and pop culture, and appendices filled with crossword puzzles and word searches. Parts of this book are similar to what one would expect to see in the sort of books that are focused on the reading interest of preteen boys and girls. That said, the author explicitly seeks to appeal to a scholarly audience and also has a very serious point to make about the need for Christian evangelism to recognize the godly longings in the heart of our admittedly imperfect and flawed contemporary popular culture. Both of these levels exist simultaneously in the book, in such a way that is likely to wholeheartedly please neither those who want a light read about Justin Beiber and the Avengers nor those who want to read a straightforward examination of the need for Christians to stop viewing popular culture as the enemy and view it the same way Paul did the Greek culture he used to build a bridge between heathen philosophy and poetry and Christianity unless those readers are content to enjoy the book on both levels.

In terms of organization, this book is very straightforward. Chapters of the book, with witty and clever titles, examine the often disguised Christian content of superhero movies, imperfect biblical adaptations, the Lego Movie, Lost, reality television, and music. Other chapters show the good and bad of various portrayals of Christians in popular culture from Saved! to the Big Bang Theory and a catchall chapter that includes further disguised biblical references in popular culture. There is a lengthy appendix of puzzles and games that seeks to provide some level of biblical familiarity to the audience as well. The author does not hide his agenda to influence Christians to treat popular culture as a bridge rather than as an enemy, and this view is not likely to please all of its readers. Yet an open agenda is better than any secret one would have been.

So, how does one view this book? It has an important point, and one that deserves to be taken seriously, that we as Christians have forfeited a lot of cultural influence by being too quick to pounce on inevitable imperfections than to recognize that shared godly longings can be a bridge to greater understanding and love and compassion. That said, so much of this book is written at a lighthearted level, and is written about ephemeral aspects of popular culture that it is unlikely that this book will endure, as it is written about passing aspects of culture that are likely to become obsolete very quickly. Once the fads discussed in this book fade away, it seems unlikely that many readers will bother to dig deeper into the book when its once pleasant surface appearance has been the source of derision or confusion as tastes change and new fads take the temporary hold on our culture’s consciousness. Even then, though, no matter what form or content those fads take, there will be some bridge to biblical culture for those who are sensitive and alert, and that alone makes this book of considerable value for those who view it deeper than at the surface level.

All You Want to Know About
THE BIBLE IN POP CULTURE
By Kevin Harvey
Kevin Harvey offers a different view on superheroes in comics, popular movies and pop songs. His view is one that many would not even think of as a Biblical view. This book shows that God shows up in the most unusual places and that God can use anything to communicate with us.
Kevin compares the stores of superheroes, such as Superman and Spiderman, how their values and lives compare to the Bible teachings. The movie The Book of Eli and the TV show Lost are just two offerings that have Biblical values to share. Each chapter has a section on everyday quotes that we all have used and shows the Bible verses where they came from. A trivia quiz section is offered in each chapter and at the end of the book. Also at the end of the book, there is a collection of games and puzzles with a Biblical theme.
Not everyone will agree with Kevin in what he sees in these pop culture items. Is it possible that having pop culture offer redeeming values is a part of God's plan? God directed men in the writing of His Word, the Bible, so why, couldn't He use the writers of comics, movies, TV shows and songs to communicate with the non-believers and believers.
