The Wondering Years
The Wondering Years takes you inside the mind of Knox McCoy of The Popcast with Knox and Jamie. Pop culture can be a dirty term for Christians. We are to be in the world and not of it, but part of being in this world is T.V., movies, and music. It is part of this world and we have nothing to be ashamed of, especially if pop culture helps us to make sense of ourselves and our faith. God uses all things including all the media we love to consume. Knox knows this for himself and has delivered a collection of hilarious and poignant stories that reflect how pop culture shaped his life and carved out the foundations of his faith. For every pop culture junkie and searching soul, The Wondering Years is a great read as you explore and get to know yourself in light of the world.
I haven’t laughed so hard since the Babylon Bee’s book earlier this year. The Wondering Years embodies everything I have felt ashamed of expressing in the Christian community; pop culture has helped shape my faith and helped me discover pieces of myself. There is something magical about stories playing on a screen that causes me to wonder about myself and question what I believe to be true. Entertainment is not just entertainment for me; it is a soul-searching experience. I am thankful that Knox took the time to unveil the stories of his life and how pop culture has helped shape him and his relationship with God. Because God uses all things, even pop culture, to help us as we wonder and wander through our lives. The Wondering Years will have you laughing, crying, and taking a look at your own life all at the same time. I hope you consider buying a copy for yourself and your pop culture loving friends this Christmas season. You will not regret it!
