Featured Audio: Why Jonny Can’t Preach, from the White Horse Inn

In this Featured Audio, Mike Horton and co. of the White Horse Inn radio show interview T. David Gordon about his recent short-and-sweet book, Why Johnny Can’t Preach: The Media Have Shaped the Messengers (P & R, 2009). Gordon is professor of religion and Greek at Grove City College, minister in the Presbyterian Church in America, and a well-known expositor of ‘media ecology’ (if you want to know what that is, just listen to the broadcast!).

To listen, click here, or on the Featured Audio widget in the sidebar.

I think T. David Gordon’s take on the relationship between media (in all its forms), the message of the gospel, and how the content and form of the message shapes both the message and its messengers, is in important ways much more well-rounded than the similar piece from Shane Hipps’ article, “From the Printing Press to the iPhone” in Christianity Today.

    B, thanks for this.
    I listened to the pod cast several times.
    Wow, I have definitely been in the 70 %.
    Wish I had ordered the book sooner. Thankfully, it’s on the way.
