    Abstract

    Using theories of media literacy amongst children, this thesis explores the role of popular cultural artefacts in engaging children with biblical truth and in assisting in their spiritual formation. Particular attention is given to the ways in which children’s imaginative faculties help them interpret what they watch and read.
