A clear head addresses issues of religion in culture.,
This review is from: Pop Goes Religion: Faith in Popular Culture (Paperback)
Terry Mattingly is a writer, journalist, syndicated columnist and more. If you want find out more, Google him and check out his web site. He is a keen observer of culture and how religion fits or doesn't fit in.
In Pop Goes Religion, we get a collection of columns Terry composed over the last several years on a wide range of topics, including music, musicians, movies, TV, books, personalities, etc. They are concise and make good points. Don't worry. He is not a boycott organizer or an inflammatory voice. He doesn't rant and rave against Hollywood. Nor does he hold back when illuminating the shortcomings of Christians when it comes to being good influences on culture. Why do most Christians sit on the sidelines and just complain?
His observations will be found interesting by Christians, people of other faiths and the non-religious (I think that is everyone). Some of these columns are a bit dated, having been written about events or movies that were current as many as 6 years ago, but I still found them interesting. The movies may not be playing, but the ideas are still quite pertinent.
BTW: All of these columns and more may be found in the archives on his website.
