Secular Music and Faith, New Article by Prof. Tom Beaudoin

Professor Tom Beaudoin has published a new article, "Une catechese virtuelle. La culture populaire comme lieu d'apprentissage de la foi," in the journal _Lumen Vitae: Revue Internationale de Catechese et de Pastorale_ (66:3, Sept. 2011), in which he argues that popular or "secular" music has a role in shaping faith, and that such cultural formation should be integrated reflexively into the teaching and formation of faith, a recognition that will help churches (and theology) accept that they are not masters of their own content but rather witting or unwitting partners with popular culture.
