Heather Hendershot’s Shaking the World for Jesus: Media and Conservative Evangelical Culture is one of several recent books that provides an insightful analysis of evangelical Christians’ relationship with popular culture. Like her contemporary, Daniel Radosh, Hendershot also takes a sympathetic approach to the topic, recognizing that evangelicals make significant meaning out of their interactions with and consumption of popular culture, while also being highly critical of its theological and cultural shortcomings. Hendershot reveals that in this relationship both popular culture and evangelical Christianity are deeply affected by their interactions with one another.
