New article (on American Ninja Warrior!) over at Christ and Pop Culture

I'm a little late on announcing this here (though if you follow me on Twitter, you'll have already heard), but I'm delighted to say that I've got an article in the new issue of Christ and Pop Culture.

Here's a snippet:

There’s a different kind of reality show, though, and that’s the kind that invites us to admire virtue rather than to wallow deliciously in vice. This kind of show includes hits like Top Chef and Project Runway. Though contestant fights and foibles are still a part of the plot, the real joy of these shows comes from the simple delight of watching people who are good at something do the something they are good at.

 The issue is currently behind a pay-wall and available only to subscribers, because CaPC is one of those wonderful venues that actually believes in paying their writers. But you can become a subscriber for only $5, so if the contents look interesting to you, go ahead and treat yourself to some good reading! I don't think you'll regret it.

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell
