"Surely God, who is present always in each part of His creation, is present in the means to alleviate the sufferings and sicknesses of mankind, mental and physical. As God is sovereign over the 'world' of medicine and healing, and is present in the implements of that 'world' as in the implements of the whole world, so God is present in the methods of public relations, of disseminating His Word (and all words) to mankind. God is sovereign over the 'world' of public relations as over the whole world. (It is to be understood that this implies no negation of demonic influences.) (p. 19) .... The Church in the Age of Publicity is confronted by nothing quite so simple as a choice between 'use' and 'nonuse' of the media of mass communication. we cannot be simply 'for' or 'against' mass media. We find that we must come to grips with the acute problem of 'correct use' and 'misuse' (p. 20)". -- The Age of Publicity: Introduction.

Notes
"Seeking intimations of grace at the movies can be hit-and-miss. ... Four recent movies touch on aspects of grace: three are explicitly Christian in perspective, while the fourth is implicitly grounded in faith. The best of the quartet is 'Paul, Apostle of Christ'." Paul's [James Faulkner] "strength and Luke's [Jim Caviezel] gentleness are admirable without seeming artificial. Solid performances, and a message that feels unforced, combine to pleasing result". "In 'God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness' a historic church situated on a secular university campus in no longer welcome. .... It suggests that organized religion is under attack by secular foes; but, so far (in the West, at least) that's a hyperbolic premise. .... The writing and cast are uneven ..". "'I Can Only Imagine' is based on the true story of the lead singer for MercyMe, a Christian music band that struck a chord with the song that gives the film its title. It's well-intentioned stuff -- about turning pain to inspiration. But its protagonist (J. Michael Finley's Bart Millard) is dull". "'A Wrinkle in Time', which sends children on a trans-dimensional journey to find their missing father, is a disappointment. .... authenticity is missing here, in a film hampered by inconsistent casting ... an overreliance on effects and a misreading of the story as an action piece, when it is actually anchored in relationships ... It inflates the potency of evil ... And the heart of the story, which is about grace, is neglected ..".

Notes
A review of "Superman Returns" which notes that it is "replete with Christian symbols and allusions". "[T]he central message of the film is that the world needs a saviour. Humanity is incapable of sustaining itself let alone saving itself. Reinforcing this notion this Superman is an all-seeing, all-hearing superhero. There are visual references to the Cross and even an allusion to death and resurrection. There is no doubt that the man in tights is being presented as a Christ-figure".
