In America today, Christianity is not only encountered within the walls of churches or the confines of small group Bible studies. Rather, expressions of faith routinely seep into popular culture, whether in the form of Bible bumper stickers, evangelistic tracts, mega-church billboards, or Christian theme parks. How can we understand and interact with these forms of “roadside religion”? What role do they play in shaping popular Christian beliefs? And how might a Presbyterian respond to these curious combinations of Christianity and culture? This eight-session series explores these and other questions about the everyday artifacts of faith known as roadside religion.
