Popcultured by Steve Turner is a book that examines the present culture in light of the Scriptures. Turner examines cinematic art, journalism, celebrity culture, fashion, thrills, comedy, advertising, technology, photography and TV and movies. He gives many outstanding examples in each of these areas to illustrate his point of view. He also brings biblical passages to bear upon cultural values and beliefs. He emphasizes the necessity for spiritual discernment in critquing our culture. We must separate good from evil. In order to accomplish this, we must put everything to the test of truth. Then, we hold to the good and reject the evil. I have written a review of this book and it is avaiable on my blog under “Book Reviews.”
