The book "Pop Goes Religion" by Terry mattingly is about one mans understanding of what has happened to religion within popular culture. The book is composed of a collection of excerpts from different articles written by Mr. Mattingly. They are not bias in anyway, but they are a bit outdated some information as old as 13 years old, However it is still a good book for christians and other religions alike. The book talks about how religion, specifically Christianity, is bashed and forgotten in current pop culture while most christians just sit and watch as it happens, They dont have the spiritual tools to pick up on it so easily. A good read.
