Seminar 4:
A 'Titanic' Struggle

The Media Culture and the Battle for Minds and Hearts

Cinema and television are increasingly places where ideas are explored and values are formed. What is the media telling us about ourselves?

How much do we know about the media culture that forms us, and especially our young people?

What is the media putting on the agenda of Christian believers, and what can we do about it?
