Popular Culture and Theology is currently seeking bloggers to provide content.
For those familiar with the Popular Culture and Philosophy series from either Open Court Publishing or Blackwell, it may surprise you to know that there is not an equivalent field for the discipline of theology, yet the relevance of theological discourse seems important in light of the increasingly religious character of global discourse.
There are those who question the legitimacy of such efforts to popularize academic discourse. If that describes you, please visit www.andphilosophy.com and read William Irwin’s article, “Fancy Taking a Pop?”
People from all backgrounds and traditions are welcome: conservative and progressive, believing and skeptical, theoretician and practitioner. The purpose is to use pop culture (TV, movies, music, etc.) to teach theology and to understand different theologians and religious texts. With that said, the emphasis of this site is on theological ideas and themes from particular thinkers, not simply any particular sacred text itself. While grounded in a sacred text, we are looking for theological thought that has been fleshed out through the theological process, one that often combines elements of sacred text, tradition, reason, and experience.
