Understanding Theology and Popular Culture is one of the first books to give students a complete overview of the key issues and methods in this field of study. It provides a clear introduction to key theories and debates for those new to the subject, as well as developing a useful discussion for more advanced researchers. Drawing on original case studies ranging from Eminem to The Simpsons, the text examines the nature and role of popular culture, and presents a reasoned argument about the distinctive contribution that theology can make to popular culture studies.
