The Gospel According to the Simpsons: The Spiritual Life of the World's Most Animated Family
Date: July 2005
Duration: 7 hours 46 minutes
How did The Simpsons, one of the most popular television shows in history, go from being attacked by many religious leaders for its lack of family values to being called one of the most theologically relevant programs in prime time? Religion journalist Mark Pinsky tackles that question in this accessible, witty, and enlightening book. Pinsky explores the individual characters, interviews several of the show’s writers and producers, and concludes with a discussion of whether the show – once cited as further evidence of the decline of civility and morality in the world- is subversive or supportive of faith. The answer may surprise you.
