Eden, Avatar and the Kingdom of Christ
Here we have Dr. Al Mohler, President of SBTS holding a panel discussion with other eminent theologians and teachers regarding Christianity and culture in general, and the movie Avatar and Christian thinking in particular.

The discussion ranges broadly and often with great humor and sometimes irony. These are largely academics in an academic environment, but many of them also have practical pastoral experience. Nevertheless, their conversation addresses the broader issues and seems light to me on practical application - or even in proposing Biblical guidelines regarding an approach to culture.

And although Dr. Mohler quotes numerous past theologians as being opposed to such things as novels and movies, he seems to avoid identifying fellow Baptist C.H. Spurgeon as one who anathematized the theater. (/smile) Enjoy this one....
