Author Phyllis Tickle talks about her influential book about newly emerging forms of Christianity.
Need Help Watching Videos?
Jim, I'm glad that you are featuring Episcopal artists and their books at Episcopal Cafe - but I am uncomfortable with your choice here.
I'd much prefer to see the author and an interviewer, face to face, the interviewer asking questions, the author answering them - in a word, journalism. The production values don't have to be top-notch. Heck, I'll watch a video of somebody making mac and cheese.
This Great Emergence video isn't journalism - it's just a slick, flossy, professionally-made advertisement for a book. And that's what makes me uncomfortable.
Thanks for all the great work you do. This is one of my very favorite websites -

Phyllis Tickle just spoke at our clergy conference, and the response was tremendous. (I wasn't there, myself becaue I had to be in Anaheim for the GC Webcast, but everyone was raving about it.) I think it is importnat to spread the news about this book. So I plan to use a few more of the videos that Phyllis made to promote it. Promotion is all we have to offer the people who make things available to Episcopal Cafe. So I don't mind offering it in exchange for good content.
Thanks for your kind words about the Cafe.
