How To Think Theologically About Pop Culture

Justin Taylor:
Ted Turnau, author of Popologetics: Popular Culture in Christian Perspective, writes in Tabletalk on five ways to understand and therefore engage popular culture:
  • At its heart, popular culture is about worship. 
  • Every piece of popular culture is a complicated mixture of good and bad, truth and lies, grace and idolatry. 
  • Popular culture uses that grace to promote idols. 
  • The gospel delivers just where idols default on their promises. 
  • Not every piece of popular culture is appropriate for every Christian.
