The average American watches 5 hours of TV daily and, each year, we collectively spend about $30 billion on movies. Simply put, we’re entertainment junkies. But can we learn something from our insatiable addiction to stories? Mike Cosper thinks so—arguing that popular shows and movies speak volumes about who we are as broken people living in a broken world. From horror flicks to rom–coms, the tales we tell and the myths we weave inevitably echo the one, great narrative underlying all of history: the story of man’s tragic sin and God’s triumphant salvation. Cosper shows how modern entertainment reveals humanity’s universal longing for redemption as he explores a variety of genres, influential films, and shows, ultimately teaching us how to engage with and evaluate what we watch.
