Bible in Pop Culture

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.
