The Day Metallica Came to Church

Searching for the Everywhere God in Everything

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


What do the music of Metallica and Bach, the film Crash, and stories about Batman have in common? According to author and pastor John Van Sloten, God can speak through all of them—if we're listening. Out of his own often startling and sometimes wrenching journey of discovery, Van Sloten shows how God can speak to us through anything and everything—heavy metal music, R-rated films, sports, and even the latest fashions. This book might just change the way you hear God's voice—and how you live in today's world.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 02, 2010 – The idea that God can be found in all things is nothing new in Christianity. Still, some contemporary believers are reticent to search for God in popular culture, which is often dubbed a lower form of entertainment. Van Sloten, a pastor and former real estate developer, cannot help seeing God everywhere, and he goes to great lengths to help his congregation do the same. Whether heavy metal music, sports, or blockbuster films, the author mines a large swath of U.S. pop culture and adroitly connects people s desire to enjoy these entertainments with their desire to find God. All along he cautions against replacing or equating God with music and mass media, but he never dilutes the message about God s omnipresence in human life. Not all Christians will be comfortable with the author s suggestions, but many others will appreciate his ability to discern the holy in everyday life, especially in those areas too often considered secular.
