Television, Religion, and Supernatural: Hunting Monsters, Finding Gods is the first book-length treatment using a theory-based inquiry of the nuanced religious messages in Supernatural, a popular, long-running television series. As a popular culture artifact, Supernatural presents religious themes via entertainment, relying on a combination of horror and fantasy genres to convey a Christianity without Christ. This book uncovers how mass media, and entertainment television in particular, provide a conduit for religious messages—ones that speak to the role of faith in contemporary U.S. society.
