Episode 141 - Does Christian Music Even Exist?: Pushing the Boundaries of "Sacred" Art

In Episode 141, Keith and Justin are back to talk about the categorization of "Christian music." What does it mean for music to be "Christian?" Is a song Christian due to its lyrical content, the writer's purpose, or how it functions in the spiritual life of the listener? Is the label even useful in the first place? How do bands such as Kings Kaleidoscope and Gungor mimic the Christian journey of deconstruction and reconstruction? How does parody fit into this model, and what, if anything, should be done to revitalize the label of Christian music? Listen to find out what we think! In the beginning, the guys catch up as Justin evaluates the new live-action Death Note adaptation, and whether comparing it to the anime is fair, while Keith mentions the events of Hurricane Harvey and a certain Houston pastor whose response was questionable. There's no Giants in the Sound segment tonight, but the guys are sure to talk about Kings Kaleidoscope's new album, The Beauty Between. Finally, the guys wrap up the show by giving their final thoughts. As always, be sure to comment, rate, and subscribe to the podcast. Let us know what you think!
