In this follow-up to his bestselling The Gospel According to The Simpsons: The Spiritual Life of the World's Most Animated Family, religion journalist Mark Pinsky explores the role that the animated features of Walt Disney played on the moral and spiritual development of generations of children. Pinsky explores thirty-one of the most popular Disney films, as well as recent developments such as the 1990s boycott of Disney by the Southern Baptist Convention and the role that Michael Eisner and Jeffrey Katzenberg played in the resurgance of the company since the mid-1980s.

Among the growing list of "Gospel ..." titles, the "Disney" volume delves into probably the most powerful media influences on our own childhood and, for Baby Boomers, on our years raising children. So, Pinsky takes us through the major animated movies from "Snow White" through "Brother Bear."
Because Pinsky worked for years as Religion Writer for the Orlando Sentinel newspaper, he's also able to provide insightful chapters about the impact of Disney's changing leadership on the themes of its films -- and to point out how these themes shaped the world-famous parks.
Virtually every American adult has some personal association with Disney movies, so this book is a natural for discussion groups. And, it's loads of fun along the way.
