Video interview about "Popologetics" is up on Youtube!

Hey All,

I finally finished editing an interview I did to promote my book Popologetics. It's a fun interview. You should take a look. It's posted here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDaiN3SiZ9I. Hope you guys enjoy it. Josiah Bedrosian and I enjoyed making it.

Peace,

Ted

Date for Popologetics is released!

Hey All,

As I was putting up the links section of this website, I ran across my book, Popologetics, available for pre-order at amazon and Christian Book Distributors. CBD said the release date was April 16th, 2012. That's so cool: my Mom and brother's birthdays! I guess P&R were going to get around telling me at some point...

Links Page is Up

Hi All,

I've spent a little time putting together a few links for this page. Most of the links are to my stuff you can find on the web. Just like Google, but I save you the time. There are a few that are to other places where cool stuff is happening (Damaris, Hollywood Jesus, The Row House). You'll find resources there, too. Hope you guys find it helpful. I'll add to it as I find stuff and have the time.

Peace,

Ted

"Popular Cultural 'Worlds' as Alternative Religions" posted!

Hi All,

Don't have a lot of time right now since I've got a ton of grading to do, and I've got to send comments to my editor by the end of December (yeek!). But I wanted to start posting some scholarly articles I'd done in the past. The first one is up. Take a look. I hope you find it useful.

Peace,

Thoughts on imagination, Plato, and Jamie Smith's "Desiring the Kingdom," apologetics, and my second book.

Hey Everyone,

This is going to mark a departure for me. I'm actually going to start treating my website as a blog, someplace where I can think out loud about the stuff I'm working through (rather than just a place to post additions to the Movie Night Kit). So bear with me.

Book Preview is Up on Site!!!

Hey All,

Sorry I've been neglecting the site. The book is moving ahead apace. I've been told by P&R that it is scheduled for release at the end of April. But they've also let me give you guys a little taste of the book by giving me permission to post the cover and intro (and I don't think they'll be mad that I threw in the table of contents to boot).

There Will Be Blood, La Antena, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and True Grit, and update on the book

Hey All,

Just wanted to let you know that I've added four new movies after a long hiatus (I'm a lazy blog-lord, I know). Hopefully, more to come. Much of the work on my book on popular culture is done. It will be published by P&R sometime in 2012 (May, I think). I'm thinking of posting a couple chapters on this site. Stay tuned.

Peace,

Ted

District 9 and The Road

Hey All.

Finally got an hour or so to update the Movie Kit and add a couple of new reviews: District 9 and The Road. Both films quite dark and violent. Not because I don't like fun films, but sometimes, you can find some real insight-laden gems on the dark side. We just discussed The Road last night with a bunch of students. Good discussion, I think.  So, until next time.

Peace,

Ted

Gran Torino

Hey All,

I just added a capsule review for Clint Eastwood's Gran Torino. In the near future, I'll have to add District 9 and a few other movies that I've missed.  Stay tuned.

Peace,

Ted
