The Gospel According to Tony Soprano
Churches aiming to appeal to a younger group have started using a book, The Gospel According to Tony Soprano, as a guide for Bible study lessons. In the book, spiritual teacher and writer Chris Seay analyzes the characters and their all-too-human behaviors, and helps readers evaluate their own humanity, and ultimately their relationship with God.
Besides watching the show, one class has fellowship activities afterward with an Italian theme. So far, they've gone out to dinner and have played poker, with all proceeds going toward a Children's Home. Soon, the "fellowship family" plans to take dodge ball "hits" out on students on campus as another fund-raiser.
