New Article in Modern Reformation

I have a new article out in the November-December issue of Modern Reformation. It’s entitled “American Idol, American Culture, the Christian Church, and Your Bible Study.” I explore the impact on the church of the Western cultural forces of “authenticity and disintermediation”—forces you can see in places from reality TV to YouTube.

    It requires a subscription to the magazine. Are you able to post the full text on your website?

      I’m afraid I myself don’t have access, but when or if it becomes available I will link to it. Sorry!
