Celebrities for Jesus with Katelyn Beaty
How did the celebrity culture infiltrate the evangelical church and what should be done about it?
Writer Katelyn Beaty has written a thought-provoking book, Celebrities for Jesus: How Personas, Platforms and Profits are Hurting the Church. She traces the history of the celebrity pastor, mega churches, publishing deals, and stages/screens; through all this, she exposes the dangers of fame without accountability and spiritual maturity.
This is an important topic and Katelyn doesn’t come to it as one with a vendetta, but as one who loves the church, loves Jesus, and is concerned where we’re headed. We should be too.
