Ep. 33: The Falwell Fiasco: Where Was The Board?
On today’s program, Jerry Falwell Jr. has resigned as president of Liberty University, walking away with a reported $10.5-million severance package. What lessons can the evangelical church learn from the Falwell Fiasco? Also on today’s podcast: Two hurricanes hit the Gulf Coast, and terrible straight-line winds level crops in the Midwest. Christian relief ministries are responding. And Christian publishing giant David C. Cook struggles to re-invent itself in the face of massive shifts in publishing and music. We’ve got a profile.
We want to remind everyone that on our MinistryWatch extra episode, we have Julie Roys as our special guest. Julie is the brains behind The Roys Report, which has broken a lot of important stories in the ministry world. She talks about her approach to journalism and we discuss why and how journalism can play an important role in educating the Body of Christ and in enhancing the credibility of the church in the world.
