Crossroads: Faith and Culture Project

The Faith and Culture Project “recognizes the powerful medium of the popular arts as a revelation of the realities of the human condition including its beauty and truth by seeking to engage with popular culture, and to discern the positive and negative messages woven within culture as they relate either directly or indirectly to the Christian faith.” Crossroads has been in existence for 19 years at Montreat and is on a three-year cycle, focusing on music, film and literature.
