Spiritual Truth Seekers – Personal Jesus: How Popular Music Shapes Our Souls

During the month of March, the Spiritual Truth Seekers class will be discussing “Personal Jesus: How Popular Music Shapes Our Souls” by Clive Marsh and Vaughan S. Roberts.

“Pop music is now an ever-present force shaping citizens in the West. Even at funerals, it is often requested over hymns. But how does popular music work, and what roles does it play for listeners who engage it? Personal Jesus explores the theological significance of the ways pop music is listened to and used today. Popular music is used by religious and nonreligious people alike to make meaning, enabling us to explore human concerns about embodiment, create communities, and tap into transcendence. The authors assess what is happening to Christian faith and theology as a result and explore practical implications for the church, the academy, and daily musical listening.”

STS meets Sunday mornings at 9:45 AM in Room 209.
