The Prophets in a Media World

Description

This talk explores the relationship between the biblical prophets and today's media world by exploring themes which are central to both. These include truth, justice, values, relationships within society, and right foundations for life. These are issues with which journalists, as well as filmmakers, writers, and other creatives regularly engage, and which fuel heated debates within social media. We consider how both the biblical prophets and the contemporary media prompt people to reflect on their current reality, and present alternative possible futures. This leads to some final reflections on how the biblical prophets can serve as role models for communicating truth in today's media world.
