Watch Justin Bieber's Faith and Challenges on PBS. See more from Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly.

146854891KS00020_Teen_ChoicYou don’t have to “get” Justin Bieber. Just look around and listen to your teenage nieces or your pre-teen neighbors living next door. It’s more than just a love affair with the seventeen-year-old singer and pop star. He’s a heroic figure to many of his fans, so I get what Cathleen Falsani means when she uses the word “prophetic” to describe him (although I do, admittedly, cringe a bit hearing her making the declaration).

In this interview with PBS’ Religion & Ethics Newsweekly, the author of Belieber!: Fame, Faith and the Heart of Justin Bieber discusses the cultural icon’s religious background, the role of faith in Bieber’s life, and how the young Evangelical Christian talks about his faith in ways that make his fellow Christians uncomfortable.

He's a teen.  The things he says are supposed to make you uncomfortable just like they were really cute ten years earlier when he was a child.  Anyone who takes what he says as serious or profound is daft and really should read books and practice their critical faculties.   

I don't understand his haters. He is a real blessing to the world. Have you seen this?
