6:15 PM - 7:15 PM - Lounge
Pastor and author Matt Rawle is on a mission. He sees Christ all around him—in books, movies, TV shows, rock music—and he wants to share what he sees. As Matt says, "God offers the raw ingredients, and 'culture' is whatever we cook up."
In The Salvation of Doctor Who, pastor and author Matt Rawle draws on the long-running TV show and cult favorite Doctor Who to chart the intersection of faith and science. Chapters include “Bigger on the Inside,” “God and Time and God’s Time,” “The Oldest Question in the Universe,” and “The Sonic Screwdriver Is Mightier Than the Sword.”
The Salvation of Doctor Who is part of The Pop in Culture Series of Bible studies in which Matt Rawle stirs up a tasty gumbo of insight, humor, and inspiration based on some of your favorite pop culture classics.
On Our Way

On Our Way looks at common subjects in fresh, meaningful ways. It presents “study,” for example, as “not synonymous with reading books or with academic reflection, though it may well include these.” Instead, this essay explains study as “a particular kind of attending to Christ and the world, a particular stance of curiosity, vigilance, and openness to learning—an openness that extends even to unlearning what we have previously learned to take for granted.” Other chapters explore such subjects as discerning God’s call, friendship and intimacy, care for creation, knowing and loving our neighbors of other faiths, and doing justice.
As young adults move away from the confines of home, school, and church youth group, this book will serve as an excellent resource. While it speaks from a Christian perspective, its broad approach makes it appealing both to Christians and to those who consider themselves “spiritual but not religious.”
