Bibles in Popular Cultures

  • By Rebekah Welton, Zanne Domoney-Lyttle, Laura Quick
Product Description

This book traces the diverse ways in which overlooked forms of cultural media, existing outside the sphere of 'popular culture, interact with the Bible. Supporting the theory that there is no singular 'Bible' and that biblical literacy is demonstrated in a multitude of ways outside of biblical text alone, those who contribute to this book explore precisely how which multiple 'cultural Bibles' co-exist simultaneously, in various forms which represent, allude to, perpetuate, challenge or subvert biblical narratives and the Bible. Such perspectives demonstrate the means by which the Bible continues to inform culture outside of the religious.

Beginning with an introductory analysis of the Bible in visual cultural media - including definitions of what 'culture', 'subculture', 'counterculture' and 'popular culture' mean in this respect - the contributors explore the myriad methods in which cultural media represents, alludes to, challenges, questions and troubles biblical narratives. By discussing topics gathered under depictions of sex and gender, troubling and whitewashed representations, biblical allusions in subcultural media, and subverting or challenging biblical authority, this volume offers new studies on subcultural representations of the Bible which seek to interrogate, perpetuate and/or challenge dominant cultural ideas of what the Bible is, and who it is for.
