One of six titles in The Bible in American Culture series published to celebrate the Society of Biblical Literature's centennial, this second volume focuses on the Bible and American popular culture. Topics include the treatment of biblical material in fiction, art, music, and children's literature, once an undervalued field. This volume set the stage for current research being done on the Bible, religion more generally, and ancient and modern forms of popular culture.

Features

  • Essays explore the use and misuse of the Bible in American culture
  • Eight articles from scholars representing a variety of academic fields
