The book The Rainbow Comes and Goes, Christianity Today’s new project The Local Church and the Instagram satire account Barbie Savior are all up for the 11th spot on the CaPC 25 for 2016. Special guests Erin Straza and Brian Gregory Thomas join host Jonathan Clauson to debate between the three nominees.
The Rainbow Comes and Goes is a collection of email correspondence between Andersoon Cooper and his mother Gloria Vanderbilt. Both Gloria and Anderson are people of status, privilege and cultural influence but the book shows a more intimate side as the mother and son embark on an email correspondence where Anderson learns his mother’s stories and history.
Christianity Toady’s The Local Church is a new section in both print, online and podcasting that seeks to celebrate and encourage the local pastor and the local church. The idea is to create content “that puts the local church experience up front and understands the pressures and struggles of church leaders.”
Barbie Savior is a satire account from two anonymous women who draw from their own experiences as “white saviors” during their trips to Africa. The purpose of the account, not unlike the now defunct SocalityBarbie, is to shine a light on the people who fetishize and over-sentimentalize the experience of visiting Africa.
Which of these three nominations will make it to the 11th spot on #The25?
