Dick Staub : The Culturally Savvy Christian (Part 1a)

This video is worth seeing. Dick Staub is the author of the book ‘The cultural savvy Christian’. He refers in this vid to the various portrayals of Jesus in film, be they Jesus as the Divine as in ‘The greatest story ever told’, or Jesus the man as in ‘Godspell’. This is the first of five parts to the interview; the rest can be seen on Youtube .
It is true that Christians should be ‘culturally savvy’, that is culturally relevant, but also 'biblically savvy’, that is sharing the authentic message in the culture we find ourselves in. To do this we need wisdom, humility, sensitivity, love and most of all the Holy Spirit. AK
