The Bible in Pop Culture ~ Kevin Harvey

I was excited to get this book and what a disappointment.  I did not understand what this book was trying to say.  The back cover explains how Kevin is going to tell us how GOD shows up in movies, TV shows and the media today.  I did not read this cover to cover as the book has no flow, it is confusing and not an easy understanding read.  The font through out the book is big, little, fuzzy, outlined, highlighted, different types of font, very hard on your eyes and very distracting.  I wish I could have gotten through the book, but I did skim it to try to find a subject I could understand and what he was trying to get through to the readers.  I did not like that he puts only a few words from a bible verse and then give the reference i.e.....(v.2) (v. 3-4).  At the end of the book, it has crossword puzzles, mazes, word search and quizzes, that you would find in a child's Sunday school class bulletin.  Needless to say I was heartbroken as I was looking forward to this book. 

I would not recommend this book to anyone as I couldn't understand what the message was in this book.  Sorry to say, don't buy this unless you are at a bookstore and can skim it and see if you understand the flow.  I do hope that someone does understand the format of this book, as I can tell Kevin did try and he put effort into writing this.  This is just not my style of book.
