Publisher's Description

With more than 400 reality programs in the United States, it's no secret that "Reality TV" has infiltrated the homes of America. Even shows that are sticking to fiction tend to grab plotlines from today's headlines, further blurring the distinction between "reality" and fiction. Reality television has not just carved out a niche in our viewing schedules, but has gone on to take a relevant role in today's culture. From the very beginning, the Christian church has been in dialogue with the contemporary culture. The idea that the Gospel is always a contextual proclamation, is always relevant, and speaks to all believers no matter what is happening in society is a core belief for Christians. Reality TV: Theology in the Video Era introduces readers to a new way of viewing this phenomenon and explores some of the most popular reality programs while seeking to understand video and media from a Christian perspective. The very nature of video and the way programs are made communicate a set of values and presuppositions that define our postmodern society. Specifically articulating the theology of these images, Stephen Faller offers readers a deeper understanding of their prime time viewing. With discussion questions at the end of each chapter, Reality TV is perfect for any adult discussion group.
