Publishers Description
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. Review: ?Pinsky make the hard-to-believe, but well argued point that The Simpsons portrays American religion better than anything else on TV.? The New York Post ?Between the jokes, Pinsky has sandwiched plenty of theological meat.? Los Angeles Times

Reviews - What do customers think about The Gospel According to the Simpsons: The Spiritual Life of the World's Most Animated Family?

Never Came  Apr 3, 2007
I ordered this item but when the other books came this one was not with them. Although the paper said that it was in the shipment
 
good discussion starter  Nov 10, 2006
This is a great discussion starter in a small group or youth group setting. A great way to present to talk about God, the Bible, Heaven and Hell, etc...
 
Yay!  Aug 30, 2003
This was a VERY good book for any small group. Yay for Pastor Skip! :D
 
Excellent Book!  Jul 17, 2003
We started using the Gospel According to the Simpsons with our High School youth group and the response has been awesome. The episodes and questions provide an excellent way to engage the kids in discussions. I highly recommend using this series - although I also recommend sending home a letter to parents explaining what you're doing with the series.
 
A fascinating course for a church  Nov 2, 2002
We have been teaching this course at our Episcopal church to an intergenerational group of about 25-30 ranging in ages from 10-77. This is a wonderful course and even if you aren't a Simpsons fan, the series really is an eye-opener.

The only small bone to pick is that they use some (two)episodes for viewing that are unavailable via tape or DVD and this requires you to tape it off of TV when it airs, if you know when that is. Also some of the videos are out of print, so E-bay was a big help.

But the response to the course has been tremendous. People are really amazed that a "wicked, evil" cartoon can be so enlightening! I would recommend this for any church considering it.
