Item description for Border Crossings: Christian Trespasses on Popular Culture and Public Affairs by Rodney Clapp...

Theologically-based reflections on Christian formation and engagement with political concerns, cultural issues, and popular culture.

Publishers Description
The usual modern assumption is that Christians are supposed to leave explicitly Christian convictions and practices behind when they engage public affairs and popular culture. In this fascinating book, Rodney Clapp rejects that assumption and trespasses onto secular territory--from global corporations to Winnie-the-Pooh, from family values to "The X-Files," from consumerism to Hank Williams and John Coltrane.

Reviews - What do customers think about Border Crossings: Christian Trespasses on Popular Culture and Public Affairs?

balancing David's silly review  Jun 4, 2004
Hey, Someone has to balance out the review by David from PA. How can you review a book you haven't read because you 'know the spiel'? Based on everything I have ever read by Clapp, I don't think David has a clue about the 'spiel'. How can someone's review be counted when they haven't read the book?
Not liking jazz = sin????  Feb 16, 2004
I haven't read the book but I know the spiel.

You've got to be kidding. In the first place, in the circles I run, Christianized pop music (which comes from rock'n'roll, which comes from r & b, which comes from jazz) is s. o. p. In the second place, I don't like jazz because I don't like jazz. I have a half-a-dozen jazz sets in my collection. Never listen to them anymore, for much the same reason I don't listen to the rock artists I used to listen to: classical music is, for me, spiritually and aesthetically superior. That doesn't make me a racist.
Then again, if I'm a racist, the author is a cultural cross-dresser. Which he has the perfect right to be, just don't be so expletive deleted superior about it.

These pundits posing as prophets... Yuck...

John Coltrane, Jesus, and the X-Files  Sep 20, 2001
Rodney Clapp reconciles being a Christian and loving jazz in this thoughtful, intelligent and entertaining work. He covers how theologians are becoming increasingly irrelevant, points out how the church's refusal of jazz points to its sin of racism, and questions how the church can become as effective in its mission as the multinational corporations. Clapp displays a thorough and real understanding of Christian faith and contemporary culture, but never disappears in technical language or recycled, stale "God talk." I highly recommend this book for pastors, laypeople, and theologians of all sects and political affiliations. Everyone will be challenged and affirmed.
