Editorial Reviews

Review

“Laugh-out-loud hysterically funny and also extraordinarily poignant—we need more theology done like this.” —Dr. Douglas Gay, lecturer in practical theology at the University of Glasgow, Scotland
 
Salvation on the Small Screen? is fast, fresh, funny and filled with surprising twists. It is easy to point out what’s wrong with a broad satirical target like televangelists. It is tougher to watch closely, with patience, empathy, and openness. Yet, Nadia Bolz-Weber and her eclectic companions find the divine even amidst the most painful religious programming. Now that is miraculous!” —Craig Detweiler, PhD, director of the Reel Spirituality Institute at Fuller Theological Seminary and author of Into the Dark: Seeing the Sacred in the Top Films of the 21st Century

“The concept is as clever as it is brave: Spend 24 hours watching ‘Christian television’ programming, and bring friends. Talk about what you see. Let hilarity and poignancy ensue. Lutheran minister Nadia Bolz-Weber gives us a wincing and winsome look through those cable channels that many ignore and many others make their spiritual bread and butter. With Salvation on the Small Screen? in hand, the reader can thoughtfully go ‘behind the label’ and check out the ingredients of the oddly-influential Christian media. Bon appetit!” —Mike Morrell, TheOoze.com
 
“For those searching for faith through the fog of Christian folk religion Nadia Bolz-Weber is the ideal guide. Full of wit, sensitivity, and insight, this book will invite, provoke, and soothe those seeking to find Christianity in the midst of televised faith.” —Doug Pagitt, author of A Christianity Worth Believing
 
“Throughout Salvation on the Small Screen?, she reminds us that even though the shows on big-time Christian television may be sinful and shameful to one’s spiritual health, we’re all brothers and sisters in Christ.” —Becky Garrison, author of The New Atheist Crusaders and their Unholy Grail and Rising from the Ashes: Rethinking Church
 
“Turn off your TV and read this book. It’s enlightening and entertaining and it doesn’t emit any radiation whatsoever.” —AJ Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically
