What can Christians learn from one of the most popular TV series of all time?
In its first season, LOST averaged 15.5 million viewers per episode. The show features a cast that struggles with the eternal issues of identity, conflict, relationships, and spirituality. Though the show does not have a Christian foundation or theme, there is much believers can learn about social and cultural attitudes and perspectives through its episodes--such as. the selfish bent of human nature the darkness of evil the hunger people have for acceptance and success the realization of our need for God the hope for a positive future
Many of the problems and difficulties of everyday life are captured succinctly in LOST--making it a useful "point of reference" for understanding how different people view issues of a spiritual nature. Ankerberg and Burroughs offer practical suggestions for Christians who desire to talk effectively to others about the various themes in the show.
