All You Want to Know About the Bible in Pop Culture by Kevin Harvey

"All You Want to Know About the Bible in Pop Culture: Finding Our Creator in Superheroes, Prince Charming, and Other Modern Marvels" by Kevin Harvey is an interesting and entertaining book  filled with parallels in movies, television shows, and music to the Bible.

I must admit, I'm not much of a TV watcher (unlike Mr. Harvey), so a lot of his analogies were lost on me, but not entirely.  The author definitely has done his homework and the amount of effort and research put into this book must have been considerable.  For the reader, though, it was a fun and sometimes fascinating ride.

Not only are there similarities in pop culture to the Bible given, there are great Bible quizzes throughout the book (multiple choice... yet some tough questions) as well as the last 50 pages or so are mazes, crosswords and other puzzles that make you dive deeper into your Bible.  Very cool.

Great book for those who really enjoy movies and TV, like puzzles, and/or are fascinated by what is going on in pop culture today.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by Book Look Bloggers in exchange for my honest opinion.
