4:00 – Prophetically Incorrect: A Christian Introduction to Media Criticism
The Bible includes prophetic speech and at times the church and its representatives are called to speak prophetically. But in our media-saturated age when many claim to speak for God, how can we evaluate the avalanche of supposedly prophetic speech? What does it mean to truly be prophetic? And when Christians should speak prophetically, how can they do so in a biblical and effective way? Paul Patton offers clear guidelines for creating, critiquing, and consuming popular media, as well as practical suggestions for faithful communication. He also helps readers think critically about communication technology. Paul joins us.
SPECIAL HOUR ON SCRIPTURE STUDY
5:00 – Digital Scripture Study
Logos Bible Software allows readers to connect Scripture to their own lives. The software also features two of Steve Ray’s books: Upon This Rock and St. John’s Gospel. In this collection, Steve Ray opens up the Gospel of John for anyone to study, breaching its heavy theological shell with background and textual information that make the Gospel easier to understand. Additionally, in Upon this Rock, Steve Ray continues to delve into Scripture as he supports the authority of the pope and the office of the Vatican, investigating the early history and the theology behind the papacy. Steve joins us.
