Jesus is everywhere. He’s in movies, TV shows, music, books, everywhere. But sometimes it feels like no two depictions of Jesus are talking about the same guy. What does our culture think about Jesus? Who is he? What has he done? Why should we care? Is the Jesus of the world, the Pop Culture Christ, the same as the Jesus we find in the Bible?
Pop Culture Christ is a website about Jesus. It’s also about pop culture. It’s about exploring what popular culture thinks about Jesus and everything that is associated with him – the Bible, Christianity, faith, salvation, etc. And it works the other way as well. What does the Christian faith have to say about our world’s pop culture?
On this site you’ll be able to find reviews, comments on culture, sermons, and youth talks – all from a Christian perspective. Pop Culture Christ is available on RSS. You can subscribe to video and audio content through the itunes store via this link.
