From Britney and Brangelina to Tiger Woods and Michael Jackson, Western society is keen about its American idols and gods of the pink carpet. We worship their triumphs, pass judgement on their sins, and continue vigil at their deaths. Can our fixation on and devotion to famous person tradition itself be thought of a faith? If now not, why will we use non secular terminology to explain those stars and our activities in the direction of them?
Gods Behaving Badly examines the blurred boundary among pop culture and religion—one that has given approach to a frequently confounding fusion of the sacred and the profane. Flipping via pages of tabloid media and searching beneath the veil of Hollywood’s glamour, Pete Ward exposes how, in its shopper lifestyles, Western society elevates famous person to the theological and, in so doing, creates a brand new para-religion. unavoidably, no matter if despised or extolled, person celebrities evoke public ethical judgment, growing fertile flooring for theological innovation.
Plucked directly from the headlines, the narratives in Gods Behaving Badly provide concrete proof of the way the spiritual topics of incarnation, revelation, sin, judgment, and redemption are all woven into narratives we build approximately our so much cherished—and such a lot villainized—personalities.
