Overview

When it comes to religion the most respected voice of the past decade is not a pastor, evangelist, priest or rabbi.  She is a warm, articulate woman whose presence dominates daytime television and grocery store checkout stands.  Her influence has propelled little known authors into best-selling millionaires and spawned a media empire worth billions.  Oprah's name and image are instantly recognized by millions of adoring fans who view her as a long term friend and trusted spiritual mentor.  But many have become troubled that Oprah seems less and less tolerant of her childhood faith and has begun celebrating a Jesus very different than the God-Man of her Sunday school lessons.  Oprah's Jesus leverages the enormous popularity of Oprah Winfrey to explore the rise of generic spirituality rooted in personal preference versus transcendent beliefs rooted in historic Christian orthodoxy.

Kurt Bruner is a best-selling author of books that explore the common thread of morality in pop culture, including Finding God in the Lord of the Rings, Shedding Light on His Dark Materials, Playstation Nation, Finding God in the Land of Narnia, and How to Mess Up Your Child’s Life.
