Book Review: “Reading the Times: A Literary and Theological Inquiry Into the News”(Jeffrey Bilbro)

As we believers view the media landscape of our times, we get a certain sadness of what mess we are looking at. Some of us their gets turn off of the ugliness or get caught up fighting against its currents. We comment sharing but it spills over to became debates on either the news itself or the media outlets. As the digital age progress it seems that the news has turned into this monster that we Christians want to get rid off or should we? Maybe we should get a little bit of boost on how we deal and navigate the news. Perhaps learning to read it with the lense Jeffrey Bilbro wants us to wear?

The novelty of this book is the selling point for me to get this book. I’ve reviewed books that are quite unique and rarely been discussed. Books on sleeping, sports and poetry plus an unfinished book on writing got my attention. Then this book on menstruation came and could be the most peculiar book that I have encountered. But I got some questions as I read this latest from Rachel Jones: Does this book stands on biblical grounds or it’s just to tease our curiosity? Do we really need a book like this in the first place? After diving in the book, I found answers to those inquires.

How do we deal with flaws done by people in the past that we look up to? Whether it’s Spurgeon’s smoking cigar, Luther’s anti-Semitism, Thomas Cranmer’s recanting his Protestant belief (and recanting his recantations before going to the stake) or Bonheoffer‘s involvement to assassinate Hitler, these flaws tainted the respect we hold so dear to them (or has it?). We don’t want those “just human” or “no one is perfect” responses. Those excuses will sweep the issue under the rug. What we do want is something that will confront those flaws head on with godly wisdom that will benefit us.

True Mythology

Fans of fiction writings can easily see traces of the biblical gospel in the literature they read. They may not be aware it or they might not admit it, readers gets suck into the stories that have been told over and over again. As Christians, we need to be aware of two things. One, God implanted those stories in our very being and two, although we see the glimpses of the redemption story of Christ, those stories wont save us. They’re merely pointing us to the gospel itself that we need for the forgiveness of sins and salvation.
