God On The Streets Of Gotham

just in time for the theatrical release of Christopher Nolan’s final film (say it ain’t so) in his Batman series The Dark Knight Rises, comes a book from Paul Asay that looks at the world of Batman, with particular attention given to Nolan’s interpretation, with a Biblical and theological lens.

God On The Streets Of Gotham: What The Big Screen Batman Can Teach Us About God And Ourselves is great reading for all and required reading for fans of Nolan’s Batman films.

Asay is associate editor of Plugged In, a ministry that explores pop culture and it’s implications for the Christian journey.

Asay engages Batman stories, past and present, and Biblical texts in an appropritate manner. he does not make the case that Batman is divine or his stories are Scripture. he does, however, draw parrallels between Batman, the Bible, and life.

read God On The Streets Of Gotham and watch Nolan’s films. you’ll look at the stories and reflect upon justice, mercy, grace, good vs. evil, and duty in a new way.

*NOTE: Tyndale Publishing gave me a free copy of God On The Streets Of Gotham for a review posting on my blog. For more information check out the Tyndale Blog Network.
