David Zahl’s Mockingbird—Communicating God’s message through pop culture

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Illuminating God’s message of grace in popular culture, including in television shows like “Downton Abbey” and others like “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood,” is the cornerstone of Mockingbird, which strives to connect Christianity with everyday life.

Through mbird.com, contributors, including Zahl, analyze film, music, television, literature, social science and humor, dissecting the contents through a Christian understanding.

“We are not trying to cover popular culture,” said Zahl. “But we are trying to reach people through both conscious and unconscious parallels in good art.”

I still miss David’s father when he was Dean at Cathedral Church of the Advent.  He was masterful at weaving contemporary references to illustrate biblical points.  I remember attending my first “Dean’s Class” and Dean Zahl played the Jimi Hendrix version of “All Along the Watchtower”.

I’m glad David Zahl is keeping up the family tradition.
