*Marketing Ministry or Selling the Gospel? —*

*It’s time to take the gloves off and take a hardball look at modern day methods of communicating the “Christian” message. * *As an almost avid viewer of “televangelism” (and church programming, religious broadcasting, etc.), I am finding the presentations more and more disheartening. The satellite (“Christian”) networks, in particular, seem to have selected a…
