popWhere do you find the gospel? We expect to hear it from Christians. We expect to hear it in our churches and even on Christian radio stations. But what about on TV and in Film?

Can we learn any lasting value and moral lessons from shows like the Big Bang Theory or The Simpsons? Surprisingly we can and author Kevin Harvey shows us in his book All You Want to Know about the Bible in Pop Culture.

This book is packed with illustrations of how the Bible’s messages show up in the culture around us. Usually our culture denounces God but this book show us how the TV shows and films we watch and the music that surrounds us has His imprint on everything.

As Christians we must see in the command of the cultural mandate its role in shaping every area of life according to God’s will – including politics, the fine arts, science, law, medical ethics, and more. And this book is a good tool in assisting the believer to do that through pop culture.

    Hi Chuck. Thanks for the book tip, Chuck. We have a beach trip on the horizon and I am stocking up on reading materials–so I’ll keep it in mind.

    I hope things are well for you and your family.
