Scope and content

Audio 52a consists of the following recording:
Title: Geri Forsberg – “The influence of the Media”
Geri Forsber, a TWU Communications Professor, discusses the effect and influence of the media on society and the individual. She explores how a Christian worldview relates to the media in regard to form and content, and asks if, given the nature of the image-dominated media, it is possible to have a Christian world view in the media? She references “Amusing Ourselves to Death” by Neil Postman heavily. She argues that the dominant form of communication - the visual - originated with the photograph and has caused a loss of “memory” and changed how individuals perceive time, space and authority. Society has lost a sense of ultimate accountability through humanism and existentialism. Values have become relative.
Audio 52b consists of the following recording:
Title: Dr. Don Page – “The importance of Values”
Dr. Don Page, VP & Academic Dean, relates personal stories about his time as a speech writer for the Canadian Government, in relation to integrating a Christian worldview into the media. He discusses Acts 17 at great length. He also discusses the concept of “the ends justify the means,” and the issue of abortion. Page delves into the importance of compassion as a sociological value. He argues that God made humanity a compassionate race. He also discuss the release of Nelson Mandela’s release. Page talks about his article on the Helsinki Accords, particularly the closing paragraph on reaching out. He also discusses hiring and values and the trends in management literature. He explores the role of values in holding a job. Finally, he discusses a survey that explored who students considered their heroes and who they respected. He argues that Christians have an obligation to interpret in a secular world. He is cut off in the middle of a sentence and the recording ends.
