The Role of Publishing in a Time of Crisis
Dr. Theon E. Hill, Associate Professor of Communication, Wheaton College
ECPA PubU Online arrives in the midst of a global health crisis and a moment of racial unrest. People march the streets of cities around the nation and the world in pursuit of justice and equality. Communities wrestle with difficult decisions concerning the presence of various statues and landmarks.
In this moment of unrest and crisis, what is the role of Christian publishing? How can publishers best magnify Christ? How can they serve as catalyst for Gospel-centered unity, justice, and equality even as they seek to meet the demands of an uncertain marketplace? Drawing on the prophetic legacy of journalists and editor Ida B. Wells, Theon Hill will challenge Christian publishers to look beyond the bleakness of the moment to the opportunity it offers to shine a light on the power of Gospel.
