Remember this article that made the rounds a few months back?

The Award

One fact that we still haven't mentioned is that Dr. Paul Louis Metzger of Multnomah Biblical Seminary won an award for the article from the Evangelical Press Association (EPA).

More specifically, it was the

Metzger, Tebow, Pro-life and Superbowl Ads

(Just in case you don't want to read our bloviating below, you can go straight to the source at the New Wine, New Wineskins Blog.)

Christian Faith and "The Big Game"

Just in time for the Superbowl this Sunday, February 7th many media outlets are gearing up by publishing stories ranging from Christian faith in sports to pro-life ads during half-time.

As has become the case in recent years, the Seminary's very own Dr. Paul Louis Metzger was called on to be an expert for the writer of the latest article from the Religion News Service titled: "God and the Gridiron; Some are Crying Foul."

Keeping the Context

As is usually necessary, much of the value in what Dr. Metzger had to say gets stripped out for the sake of the writer's needs within the story. This typically results in only a portion of the quote being used, thereby leaving much to the imagination. In this particular article, Dr. Metzger's quote deals with the issue of a famous Christian football player named Tim Tebow who is featured in an ad (produced by Focus on the Family), espousing the positive results from a pro-life choice made by his mother. This ad will be featured during the Superbowl this year and it has raised the ire of many groups who call it "anti-abortion" and the like.

The Quote

“It could very well be a great message, but is it a good venue?” asked Paul Louis Metzger, who teaches theology and culture at Multnomah Biblical Seminary in Portland, Ore. “Is it helpful to the discussion, or does it up the volume, so to speak, on the culture war rhetoric?”

Consumer Christmas, Dr. Metzger, and USA Today

USA Today referenced Dr. Paul Louis Metzger and M.Div alum Tony Kriz in today's opinion blog. The article, written by Tom Krattenmaker, is titled:

"You Can't Buy The Real Gifts Of Christmas"

Consumer Christmas TreeA Metzger Quote

Here's our favorite quote from the story:

"Many thriving prosperity-gospel churches appear to have thoroughly embraced the American ideal of upward mobility and material well-being," Metzger says. "It makes one wonder if these churches' leaders think Jesus was a savvy entrepreneur on the rise, who would have become rich had his career not been cut short."
