The Christian world is full of its own super-stars – men and women who stride the world stage with seeming significance and sometimes staggering results. Megan and Michael ask, how is a believer to respond to these luminaries?
The Christian world has always had its prominent believers, right down to the present day. Though the advent of the Internet has given them a reach and influence like never before.
Megan Powell du Toit and Michael Jensen take a hard look at Christian celebrity – from luminaries like Tim Keller to Mark Driscoll – and ask what can be learned from our elevation of different believers.
First up, it’s an interview with Mikey Lynch, experienced church planter and Campus Director of the University Fellowship of Christians, University of Tasmania, about his personal experiences with Mark Driscoll and the revelations of The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill podcast.
Then the WADR team delve deeper into the phenomenon of Christian celebrity and what it means for the Church.
Finally, it’s a sharing of insights into a film about a flawed preacher which came out about the same time Driscoll started Mars Hill – The Apostle.
WHAT IS WITH ALL DUE RESPECT?
Less aggro, more conversation.
Is it even possible to have a deep discussion without it descending into chaos? Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit think yes, and want to show the rest of us how to do it.
