Mashup Religion: Pop Music and Theological Invention

Written by John S. McClure

reflect on the Triune God as the object of theology and ask how this God’s nature should affect how we speak theologically. That omission does not sink the book (no book can do everything), but it should serve to remind the reader not to become too enamored with the novelty of the main analogy, which is easy to do if one is desperate for a panacea and then forgets that there are other things to consider beyond culture in order to express theology in high fidelity. Indeed, the “mashing up” the author intends for readers would necessarily require the careful reader to contemplate God along with the history of theological expression.
