The Messiah Formerly Known as Jesus: Dispatches from the Intersection of Christianity and Pop Culture
Baylor University Press, 2008 - 228 páginas
The book presents a humorous look at contemporary Christianity through the skewed lens of the Internet Theologian, a pompous, absurdly self-important pundit whose confidence in his pronouncements is perhaps matched only by his utter lack of basic information about his subject matter. Believing that the only thing a real theologian needs is a cable modem, the Internet Theologian touches on Christianity's relationship with music, sports, best-selling novels, and holidays, among others. The book also includes a handy field guide to the various ways Americans interpret Jesus.
