Theology of Running Away


Have you ever seen an ad that made you feel like being anywhere but here? Have you ever thought what that might have to do with the Christian life?

In this presentation, Dr. Matthew Tan looks at popular media to help us explore the deep linkages that pop culture’s trope of escape has with the Christian tradition. He will also identify the serious divergences that pop culture’s version of escape has with the Christian, and explore how true escape is necessary, and possible, in Jesus Christ.
