Dr. Russell Moore: The Politics of the Next Generation
For many, politics is a regular topic of conversation and thought. Others avoid thinking or talking about politics because of discomfort and frustration. For either kind of viewer, Dr. Russell Moore discusses why politics matter (primarily as Christians and secondly as Americans), where we should place politics on our list of priorities, and how we can best serve our community both inside and outside of the political realm. He also talks about how Christians should go about choosing a candidate.
John Stonestreet: Amusing Ourselves to Death
The idea of culture has become bifurcated in some circles, divided into Christian culture and worldly culture. John Stonestreet explains why this approach is unbiblical, and gives immediate and concrete ways for parents and students students to face culture head-on, without drowning in unprocessed information. By re-shaping how we think about culture, encouraging better media consumption habits, and deconstructing the idea of Christian culture as a whole, Stonestreet provides viewers with a brand new outlook — perhaps a much more inviting one.
