Dr. Amy Yoder of Northwest Christian: Should We Completely Avoid Literature, Movies, and Music that Do Not Agree with Biblical Worldview?
Dr. Amy Yoder is a cornerstone in the Northwest Christian English department. Beloved by students although she pushes them hard, engaging in the classroom, and creative within her lessons, her courses (Honors Junior English and Honors Senior English) earn her Northwest Christian students college credit at both Grand Canyon University and Colorado Christian University. Her research into effective spiritual formation strategies within high school students has been professionally published and she has been invited to speak on the subject at different conferences.
In short, she is the perfect person to ask the question, "Should we completely avoid literature, art, and music if it conflicts with a Biblical worldview?" As an extension of the question, should be only engage artistic expression if it is created by those in a right-standing relationship with their Creator?
Will you agree with her answer?
