Product Description

Television has eclipsed the church and school as the most dominant storyteller in our culture. Watching What We Watch discusses the various aspects of "reading" television, helps us to understand how television creates meanings, and teaches us to assess the truth and value of those meanings.

Watching What We Watch provides an accessible framework for analyzing television theologically and from the perspective of our values and beliefs. A team of experts uses examples from popular television shows to to explore the forces that drive television production and to challenge viewers to consider what things they should appreciate about television and what things they should call into question.
