The Christian Media Counterculture

Interesting article by Henry Jenkins, who has written before about, among other things, the whole phenomenon of fandom. The first half is mostly about Christian subcultures producing their own alternative media, the second about Christians like the folks at Ransom Fellowship or Hollywood Jesus who seek to engage with mainstream media and foster media literacy within a religious context. Jenkins calls this latter group the "Christian discernment movement," a term I've not heard before in this context but whose provenance I grasp, and says he respects it. Hat tip to Tensegrities.
