The songs and videos of the acclaimed musical group, Imagine Dragons, creatively explore motifs of tragedy, treachery, redemption, and renewal; similar existential themes are found within the Bible. This session not only juxtaposes the respective articulation of these themes in songs like Radioactive and I Bet My Life, but also considers how contemporary music can provide a bridge for student understanding and engagement with ancient and perennial archetypal motifs.
