085 - Competing Spectacles

This week Ray and I met at Mocha Moment in Janesville to review the new book, Competing Spectacles: Treasuring Christ in the Media Age by Tony Reinke. The book seeks to explore what it means to live in an image-filled world where are bombarded with spectacle after spectacle all competing for our nine second attention spans. Listen and as Ray and I give our thoughts on this book and the issues raised by it. Disclaimer - Ray and I received free, advanced copies of the book for purpose of promoting it. But, we wouldn't promote it if we didn't like it.

Reining in Ray - Roadtripping with Ray

In this edition of Reining in Ray, Ray and I talk about our recent road trips. Actually, this podcast was recorded in the car, so you'll hear my muffler and a few road noises. (Shout out to Fearnside's Fix All) First, we drove down to Lincoln Christian University for a seminary lectureship on Technology, Transhumanism and Morality. This is also the college Ray spent quite some time at. In that same week, Ray and I headed north to Memorial Baptist Church in Verona, WI for a conference on forgiveness with Pastor Chris Brauns.
