Steve Turner on Pop Culture from a Christian Perspective

I was asked to write six brief book notes for the November 2013 edition of EG, published by LICC. I’ve been posting them individually here at various points over the last few weeks.

Steve Turner, Popcultured: Thinking Christianly about Style, Media and Entertainment (Nottingham: IVP, 2013).

A great reminder that the pervasiveness of pop culture provides a common language to connect with others. Broad in his coverage, Turner looks at cinema, journalism, celebrities, fashion, thrill-seeking, comedy, photography, advertising, technology, and photography, each chapter ending with questions for refection, recommendations for reading and suggestions for action. And all with the encouragement to consume discerningly, critique faithfully, and create wisely.
