René Girard, Theology, and Pop Culture

  • By T. Derrick Witherington, Ryan G. Duns, Jordan Almanzar
Product Description
In René Girard, Theology, and Popular Culture, fifteen contributors consider how Girard's mimetic theory can be used to uncover and probe the theological depths of popular culture. Creative and critical engagement with Girard's theory enables the contributors to offer fresh and exciting interpretations of movies (The Devil Wears Prada, Mean Girls, Star Wars), television (Hoarders, Cobra Kai), classical literature and graphic novels, and issues ranging from anorexia to social media. The result is a volume that establishes Girard as an innovative interpreter of culture and shows him as an invaluable guide for theologically reflecting on desire, violence, redemption, and forgiveness. Written in fresh and lively prose, the contributors demonstrate not only that Girard provides a powerful lens through which to view culture but also--and more provocatively--challenge readers to consider what popular culture reveals about them. Readers looking for an accessible introduction to mimetic theory and exploring its theological application will find this a welcome resource.
