Redeeming Pop Culture: A Kingdom Approach
by T. M. Moore
167 pp; paper
Pop culture surrounds us—its music, movies, fashions, fads, literature, and lingo. We can hardly shop, watch a sporting event, or catch up on the news without wading through a sea of popular cultural influences.
How should a Christian understand pop culture? What in it should we appreciation and enjoy? Why is it important for us not to ignore the culture around us? How can we engage, influence, and advance pop culture, and how can we put popular forms to good use in God’s kingdom?
T. M. Moore applies his knowledge of Scripture and a keen perception of popular culture to these questions in this readable book, complete with questions for study and discussion. He urges us neither to flee from popular culture nor to immerse ourselves in it blindly. Popular culture present countless opportunities for the alert, thinking Christian to glorify God through all that he has made. Its artifacts, institutions, and conventions also provide insights into a lost world and avenues for communicating the gospel of the kingdom where people live.
