Westminster John Knox Press, 01/01/2007 - 317 páginas
Is there anything holy in Springfield, the home to irascible Bart Simpson and his naive dad Homer, their enthusiastic evangelical neighbor Ned Flanders, the sourpuss minister Rev. Lovejoy, and the dozens of other unique characters who inhabit the phenomenally popular TV show? In this revision of the 2001 bestseller, author Mark Pinsky says yes!
In this entertaining and enlightening book, Pinsky shows howThe Simpsonsengages issues of religion and morality in a thoughtful, provocative, and genuinely respectful way. With three new chapters and updates to reflect the 2001-2006 seasons, Pinsky has given a thorough facelift to the book thatPublishers Weeklycalled "thoughtful and genuinely entertaining."
The new material includes chapters on Buddhism and gay marriage and an extensive afterword that explores how religion is treated on the animated shows that have followed in the footsteps ofThe Simpsons:South Park,Family Guy,Futurama,American Dad, andKing of the Hill.
