Even though the Simpsons spend more time in church than any other TV family, Homer Simpson still describes his religion as, "you know, the one with all the well-meaning rules that don't work in real life. Uh, Christianity." The uncertain fumbling through religious and ethical dilemmas that TV's most popular cartoon family experiences has provided religion journalist and Duke grad Mark Pinksy with a metaphor for the spiritual confusion we all feel. Pinsky will be at The Regulator Bookshop on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. to discuss his new book, The Gospel According to the Simpsons: The Spiritual Life of America's Most Animated Family (pictured). Call 286-2700 for details.
