Reviews

"The Springfield Reformation" is as smart, searing and timely as "The Simpsons"! Jamey Heit demonstrates how "The Simpsons" holds up a cracked and crucial mirror to American civil religion and particularly Protestant Christianity. He highlights Homer's comedic misunderstandings of God and Lisa's sharp, spiritual insights. "The Springfield Reformation" points out the gap between Americans' beliefs and practices (just like the show). Heit's masterful survey of 400 episodes (and the movie!) make it an essential addition to the growing field of theology and pop culture.
