Faith and pop cultureThomas Nelson sent me a copy of Faith and Pop Culture (Christianity Today Study) by Christianity Today.  It’s part of their series of study notes for small groups – this one provides 8 weeks worth of material on the topic of culture.  Over the 8 weeks you cover:

  • Movies
  • Books
  • Sports
  • Television
  • Family friendly entertainment
  • Violence
  • Christian influences on Hollywood
  • Entertainment v Faith

Each week starts with a mini-essay/article which can be used to start the debate.  This is followed by two options for an opening activity, an introduction to the issue, an oportunity to reflect, a chance to dig deeper, and an application to move forward with.

The notes come across as well written and designed.  I would be very interested in using them with the older teens that I work with.

Thanks to Thomas Nelson for giving me a copy to review.
