Looking Closer… in Portland, Oregon!

On Sunday, August 21, I’m coming back to my hometown of Portland, Oregon…

  • to talk about my experiences as a Christian and a film critic;
  • to describe the current dialogue in the media and in churches about the value and nature of art;
  • to examine the way Christians respond to movies;
  • to address the important differences between propaganda, entertainment, and art;
  • to talk about the unique way in which art reveals the glory of God;
  • and to answer any questions you might have.

I’d love to see you there!
