Movies, Books, and the Need for an Immune System
I enjoyed sitting in for Ed Stetzer last week on The Exchange. N.D. (Nate) Wilson and I had a conversation about truth, beauty, the power of story, and the need for Christian pastors and Christian parents to train people to distinguish between the truth and the lies in the media we consume.
Nate is a prolific writer of both fiction and non-fiction books. Because of his experience as a writer, I asked him for a blog post about The Hunger Games on my blog. The strong reaction to his blog post - “Why Hunger Games is Flawed to Its Core” - certainly struck a nerve. (Just check out the comments.)
On The Exchange, we talked about the reaction to Nate’s take on The Hunger Games, as well as Twilight, 50 Shades, and the different ways Christians approach media consumption.
