The $7 Billion Dollar Christian Fundamentalist Pop-Culture Market

Posted by NT Wrong on April 28, 2008

“Christian pop culture is now a $7 billion industry that includes a vast, growing, and diverse publishing sector; Christian comedy circuits and sex advice seminars; creationist theme parks that compete in the shadow of Disneyland; a thriving music and recording industry; and enough Jesus-branded T-shirts and trinkets to keep all the prison-factories in Godless China busy until the Rapture.”
What Do Evangelicals Listen to on Their iPods? By Alexander Zaitchik

This quote comes from a review of the newly released book, Rapture Ready! Adventures in the Parallel Universe of Christian Popular Culture by Daniel Radosh (Scribner, 2008). The book explores the $7 billion dollar Christian fundamentalist pop-culture market. Read and be suitably indignant.
