New Book from Dr. Randolph to be Featured at 2009 Festival

with commentary by Robert S. Reid

A communications revolution is sweeping through the churches leaving some on fire and others burned out. This work shows what makes the difference for church leaders and communities who are using new media to advance Christian preaching. Join them by recovering the great tradition and expanding it through creative use encouraged by artists and filmmakers as well as preachers and professors. This work explores ways to maximize the promise of preaching and confront the perils leading to the renewal of church and society as we will see at the New Way Media and Arts Festival 2009.
