King University News :: Award-winning Author Andy Crouch to Speak at King College and Bristol Public Library

Award-winning author Andy Crouch will speak at King College and the Bristol Public Library as part of the Buechner Institute's 2011-2012 Lecture Series on Monday, March 19.

Andy Crouch is the author of Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling, winner of Christianity Today's 2009 Book Award for Christianity and Culture and named one of the best books of 2008 by Publishers Weekly, Relevant, Outreach, and Leadership.

Andy will remind us that there really is something to culture, commented Dale Brown, director of the Buechner Institute at King College.  Since we reflect as well as shape the cultures in which we move, some good thinking on this business might well be in order, he added.

In 2011, Crouch was named special assistant to the president at Christianity Today International, where he has served as executive producer of the documentary films Where Faith and Culture Meet and Round Trip, and as editorial director of the Christian Vision Project.  He serves on the governing boards of Fuller Theological Seminary and Equitas Group, a philanthropic organization focused on ending child exploitation in Haiti and Southeast Asia.  Crouch is also a member of the editorial board of Books Culture, a senior fellow of the International Justice Mission's IJM Institute, and a member of the Board of Advisors for the John Templeton Foundation.  His writing has appeared in several editions of Best Christian Writing and Best Spiritual Writing.

Andy Crouch will present Live More Musically: Faith, Creativity, Excellence, and the Christian Life at 10:30 a.m. in King's Memorial Chapel, and Recovering our Creative Calling: A New Vision for Christian Cultural Engagement at 7 p.m. at the Bristol Public Library, both on March 19.  Both events are free and open to the public.  For more information, contact Dale Brown at 423.652.4156 or visit www.buechnerinstitute.org.
