The Gospel According to the SimpsonsMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
The Simpsons is one of the longest running, funniest, most irreverent, and according to some religious leaders, the most spiritually relevant show on television today. Mark Pinsky explores the show’s treatment of God, Jesus, heaven and hell, the bible and prayer, and also examines the moral and religious dilemmas faced by Homer, Marge, Bart and the other key characters. Words of Publisher on first edition.
This edition has an afterword exploring South Park, Family Guy and other animated TV shows in the U.S.A. but also known in the UK. You don’t have to be a constant watcher of The Simpsons or the other programmes, to enjoy and appreciate this book. Mark Pinsky obviously enjoys The Simpsons and has varied opinions of the others. I did not read the original book. Now I wonder why I didn’t. The author describes various episodes drawing out the Christian message therein. In future I will watch with a different perspective.
