Scribner Rapture Ready!: Adventures in the Parallel Universe of Christian Pop Culture - eBook

What does it mean when a band is judged by how hard they pray rather than how hard they rock? Would Jesus buy Christian music or wear "witness wear"? What do Christian skate parks, raves, and romance novels say about evangelicalism and America? Daniel Radosh went searching for the answers and reached some surprising conclusions.

Written with the perfect blend of amusement and respect, Rapture Ready! is an insightful, entertaining, and odd journey through the often hidden world of Christian pop culture. This vast and influential subculture -- a $7 billion industry and growing -- can no longer be ignored by those who want to understand the social, spiritual, and political aspirations of evangelical Christians. From Christian music festivals and theme parks to Passion plays and comedy nights, Daniel Radosh offers a revealing survey on Christian subculture and unique into on one of America's most important social movements.
