Book Description:

The Blackwell Guide to Theology of Popular Culture is a timely examination of the rapidly expanding field of theology and popular culture. It shows how the theological analysis of popular culture is undertaken, discusses the writers who are doing it, and outlines various general theories of popular culture. Using illustrations from the pop culture scene, ranging from the fiction of Nick Hornby and Chuck Palahniuk to novels about God, Disney fairytales, and the macabre television series Six Feet Under, the Guide identifies and discusses religious themes in popular culture. The author probes popular movies, novels, music, architectural design, television shows, and advertising for what they are saying about God, human nature, sin, salvation, and final redemption. An appendix provides an annotated list of books that offer theological readings of popular culture, and offers suggested readings on various "zones" of popular culture that lend themselves to theological analysis.

About the Author:

Kelton Cobb is Professor of Theology and Ethics at Hartford Seminary in Hartford, Connecticut.
