In today’s episode we think about the relationship between the Gospel and our culture. Is there merit in finding touchpoints between the two, or should we always seek to share the “pure” or “transcendent” Gospel? Our guest Tony Watkins finds that arts and media can provide helpful inroads for the Gospel into individual lives, as we consider the values, needs, and aspirations found in our shared culture.
Tony Watkins helps Christian leaders relate media and the Bible through his writing and teaching, and is studying for a PhD exploring connections between the media and the biblical prophets. He is the Media Engagement Network Co-ordinator for the Lausanne Movement.
