What can Christians learn from one of the most popular TV series of all time?

In its first season, LOST averaged 15.5 million viewers per episode. The show features a cast that struggles with the eternal issues of identity, conflict, relationships, and spirituality. Though the show does not have a Christian foundation or theme, there is much believers can learn about social and cultural attitudes and perspectives through its episodes—such as...

  • the selfish bent of human nature
  • the darkness of evil
  • the hunger people have for acceptance and success
  • the realization of our need for God
  • the hope for a positive future

Many of the problems and difficulties of everyday life are captured succinctly in LOST—making it a useful “point of reference” for understanding how different people view issues of a spiritual nature. Ankerberg and Burroughs offer practical suggestions for Christians who desire to talk effectively to others about the various themes in the show.
