Kevin Harvey interview: ‘The Bible in Pop Culture,’ TV and movies

Author Kevin Harvey is challenging Christians in his new book, All You Want to Know About the Bible in Pop Culture: Finding Our Creator in Superheroes, Prince Charming and Other Modern Marvels. Kevin spoke with Dispatch Radio about the new book and how readers will find redemption and gospel messages on TV, in movie theaters and even in popular music.

“I don’t think that the state of Pop Culture is nearly as bad as many in the church might think it is at first glance,” Kevin begins, “I wanted to focus on in this book…if you dig deep and pay attention to the mainstream entertainment shows you’re going to find a lot of redemption, forgiveness and grace, people loving others as Jesus commanded them….” He adds that they aren’t that much worse than those in the Old Testament.

Kevin Harvey The Bible  in Pop CultureExamples discussed were Thor in The Avengers, Cinderella and even some reality shows (not just Duck Dynasty, the Duggars). In fact, Kevin blogs regularly about different films and shows and posted an analysis of Cinderella where he noted that Cinderella “decided that she was going to present herself to the king just as she was, hoping he would still love her despite her humbled circumstances. This is a perfect picture of how our King asks us to come to him—not hiding any of our faults or putting on some kind of front—and he promises to lavish us with the royalties of his kingdom too, just as Ella received in the end as well.”

The book offers up trivia, fun facts and interesting commentary. Fans of big name shows are sure to find something to love as Kevin mused effortlessly about Lost, Blacklist, music and talking about the Hollywood culture.

An interesting theory for supporting films like Noah, Exodus etc…which were not well supported by Christians was by encouraging Hollywood to invest in these projects instead of other films: horror and slasher films, for example.
