    There were some chapters I skipped because they weren't assigned, but I actually enjoyed reading this for my religion course. It was very thought-provoking and made me see religion and popular culture through new eyes.

    This was fun and interesting look at how religious themes are embedded in many popular culture items. from baseball ro starwars there is some religious overtones. was a good coursemate for a course discussing the same.
