My recent blog post in The Lausanne Global Conversation emphasizes the validity and value of Christian media presence in the major news and entertainment media.
Such media presence presupposes professionalism and includes a number of complementary roles:
- Christian journalists and documentarians – introducing neglected stories, cases and angles
- Christian commentators – introducing neglected ideas, values and perspectives
- Christians in the creative media and the arts – introducing new ways of imagining Christian truths
- Christian apologists in media opinion and debate fora – arguing for the credibility of biblical truth over against questions, objections and worldview alternatives
It certainly also includes educating journalists (and other media communicators), with different faith commitments, on the basis of a classical Christian worldview. This is something Gimlekollen is deeply committed to!
