But if Christ is Lord of all of life, then there ought to be Christian ways to engage with and appreciate popular culture. Steve Turner has spent hi career chronicling and interviewing people from the world of music, film, television, fashion, art, and literature. Now he provides an insider' guide to a wide range of entertainment pursuits, with biblical frameworkss for understanding pop culture genres and artifacts. Turner explores how movies use redemptive narratives and parables, ways journalistic headlines, convey worldview assumptions, differences between famous people in the past and celebrities today, and more. God entrusts culture to us and gives us the ability to critique it, enjoy it, and create it. This book will help you become a better cultural critic, consumer, and creator.
