Arguing that the musical is the "most ubiquitous and dominant cultural icon of our day," scholar Ian Bradley unpacks the theological significance of the musical. Bradley believes that musicals provide for many people "an experience which can genuinely be described as religious as well as entertaining." In addition, he offers his thoughts on what the popularity of the musical might mean for the future of the church.

Review:

"If you take the contribution of the arts to faith seriously, this is a stimulating and fun survey of over a hundred years of musical theatre." THE SIGN, October 2004.
"... the great accomplishment of this book is to put theology and the musical theatre where it belongs - centre stage." The Revd Kevin Morris, Vicar of St Michael and All Angels, London. CHURCH TIMES

"A book worthy of a place in anyone's library, especially if you are willing to be challenged to explore new ways of connecting with people today." David Small, MINISTRY TODAY

"In an age when the most popular songs played at funerals are Bring Him Home, Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again and You'll Never Walk Alone - from Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera and Carousel respectively - it is surely time we sat up and took notice of what Ian Bradley has to say." REFORM, June 2005
