Christian Leaders can Benefit from Novels and Films

TCA College Leadership Insight


Title of Seminar Christian Leaders can Benefit from Novels and Films
Synopsis Although most Christians no longer view all novels or films as inherently sinful, Christian leaders often dismiss them as superficial entertainment. Compelling stories in novels and films have a way of revealing hidden motivations of the individual soul. There are the unspoken dynamics of relationships, and the subtleties of leadership that we can leverage.
