A Comparative Analysis of Oprah Winfrey's Worldview of Christianity and Biblical Christianity
About the Book
Oprah Winfrey is one the most influential people of our time. Her extraordinary gift for connecting with people, combined with her ever-expanding empire, is extending her sphere of influence significantly. For millions, Oprah is perceived as the most credible source of information concerning just about anything. However, more than anything else, Oprah uses her elevated celebrity status to expound upon her deep-rooted spiritual beliefs to millions of unsuspecting viewers, many who claim to be Christian. In Oprah Theology, author George B. Davis tells how the media maven aggressively and effectively integrates and sells her brand of New Spirituality through her speaking engagements, her book club, her magazine, her radio network, her television show, and now, her television network. Davis takes an exhaustive look at Winfrey’s claim that the core principles of her New Spirituality are based in biblical principles. Oprah Theology gives readers insight into the woman who overcame extraordinary adversity to become a media mogul. Oprah Theology also offers a unique look at how she has influenced modern-day religion—a look that suggests things may not be as they seem.
