Movies and the Gospel

In Word and Work: An Intersection, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, President Dr. Dale A. Meyer breaks down the creation of the Seminary’s first Faith and Film Festival, held in January 2020, and the importance of film in communicating the Good News, with Dr. Timothy Saleska and Rev. David Lewis. Both Seminary professors served as presenters at the festival. “I think it’s good for Christians and Christian pastors to interact with the culture,” said Lewis, assistant professor of Exegetical Theology. “We should know the people to whom we are bringing the Gospel.”

In the audio version, also hear from the co-creators of the festival, Heather Choate Davis and Rev. Jacob Wampfler. You can download the episode in video (mp4) or audio (mp3) format at the Word and Work Scholar page.

Word and Work: An Intersection is a video and audio program providing a behind-the-scenes look at ministry where everyday life and God’s Word meet. It is broadcast on KFUO Radio every Thursday at 2:00 pm CT.
