Since being introduced to American television audiences over two decades ago, Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie Simpson have become one of the most well-known, beloved, and irreverent animated families of all time. Yet even in The Simpsons one can find elements of faith and morality. Here to discuss the ways in which spirituality and religion are reflected in this longest-running comedy in television history is Mark Pinsky, author of the newly revised edition of the best-selling book that Booklist calls “seriously funny,” The Gospel according to The Simpsons.
A completely revised study guide for this volume in the popular WJK Gospel According to… series has just been released.
Mark I. Pinsky is the author of The Gospel according to The Simpsons, The Gospel according to Disney, and A Jew among the Evangelicals. He is a former religion reporter for the Orlando Sentinel and the Los Angeles Times.
