Eyes Wide Open rev exp ed Looking for God in Popular Culture Free read Ê 2 Grounded in Christian principles this accessible and engaging book offers an informed and fascinating approach to popular culture William D Romanowski provides affectionate yet astute analysis of familiar well loved movies and television characters from Indiana Jones to. This unconvincing book over analyzes popular culture mostly movies as being all part of God s creation and made in God s image The author not only makes few good logical points but writes in a style that often connects unrelated examples to a conclusion that s not obvious or well stated Thankfully there are chapter summaries at the end of each just read through those and skip the rest of the bookThe idea that God created everything and therefore all of popular culture reflects His creation is faulty God certainly created all the raw materials but He didn t specifically create what people have done with those raw materials Many things in pop culture if not most show a disregard of God s creation and emphasize trash for the sake of making money This book tries to save all of those things claiming that any film TV show book or musical recording can prove God s handiwork Nice thought but it s an intellectual exercise not reality This line of thinking ends up praising trash for minute moments of light instead of calling it the trash it is It also completely avoids the rare small popular culture projects that do spread God s true light to instead focus on the big name secular entertainment showsThe author shoves down our throat over and over the idea that pop culture should be considered art Wrong It s entertainment for the purpose of making money The author also tries to see God in movies like Pretty Woman Brokeback Mountain and other R rated fare It s wrong headed and shows a mediocre sin accepting approach to who God is and what He creates God created chickens but if a chef makes a bad chicken Kiev that gives people food poisoning it says absolutely nothing about creation a Reformed approach may be to thank God for the chicken no matter how bad the dish tastes or how many people got sick but it actually makes a bit of a mockery of what the Bible means by God creating the earth and putting man over it This theology praises the misuse of creation Most of the movies and TV shows mentioned in the book have only slivers of anything that reflects God and to praise those means people are being fed a lot of bad chickenSo the book fails on all accounts as theology as cultural analysis and as trying to find God in popular culture The author does uote critics of this type of flawed thinking and often those critics are right than he gives them credit for Maybe the author should listen to others in the Christian community instead of spouting his narrow and blind denominational approach
