ACM’s Executive Director, Dr. Anthony Horvath, delivered a presentation at the 2016 “Intelligent Faith” conference in Cedar Rapids, IA, on the topic of “Imaginative Apologetics.” Below is the audio of that presentation.
The description published in the program material:
“Imaginative Apologetics” — A call to churches to defend the faith through the arts.
From Bunyan’s “The Pilgrim’s Progress” to C.S. Lewis’s “The Screwtape Letters”, to Mozart and Bach, Christians have been influenced by art, and have influenced through art. Conversely, many souls have been harmed through films or novels such as Dan Brown’s “The Da Vinci Code.” If ever there was a time for the Church to earnestly engage the culture through the arts, it is now, when technology has made it so easy. In fact, it is just because it is so easy that the need is great: anyone, whether they are working for the Kingdom, or against it, can distribute their films, novels, music, and so on, to the masses. Himself highly influenced by both the non-fiction and fiction of C.S. Lewis, Christian apologist Dr. Anthony Horvath has oriented his ministry, Athanatos Christian Ministries, towards defending the faith through the arts and culture.
