The Mind Renewed
About This Show
The Mind Renewed : Thinking Christianly in a New World Order is hosted by Dr. Julian Charles (UK) and dedicated to understanding the world in which we live from a Christian worldview perspective. We are acutely conscious of propaganda in the mainstream media, and of the bewildering mass of information in the alternative media. We therefore seek to address matters of concern to people (whether they be 'people of faith' or none) in an unsensational and informed fashion, in the hope that truth will be uncovered and that bridges will be built between people through greater understanding. Therefore, whether it be the Surveillance State, the threat of Global Government, False-Flag Terrorism, the danger of New Religious Movements (NRMs), or any other issue too often ignored by the institutional church, The Mind Renewed analyses, interprets and critiques from a Christian worldview perspective.

TMR 169 : Blue Suede Truths (with Antony Rotunno & Julian Charles)
< 1 day ago
In what may be the only conversation on the planet that unites Country Joe & the Fish, The Beatles, John Cage, Cassetteboy and The George W. Bush Singers, we welcome back Antony Rotunno, teacher, blogger and free thinker for a relaxed, entertaining and music-filled conversation on the power of music to challenge thought and perception in the pursuit of truth.
Following on from our earlier conversation on "Truth Comedy", we this time discuss the power of music to reveal political, social and inner truths, by considering two contrasting—and yet in some ways complementary and inter-related—C20th musical traditions: the outward-challenging protest song, and the inward-challenging musical avant-garde. We also discuss some issues in aesthetics and consider the relationship between the so-called "Truth Movement" and the arts. (For show notes please visit http://themindrenewed.com)
