What were the most-meaningful cultural influences of 2017? The Christ and Pop Culture 25 is a list of our favorite people, works of art, or cultural artifacts from the past year that we feel best represent God’s truth and grace in the world.

Part one is available today; part two will be released later in the week so as to not spoil the surprise for the top spots.
