MARS HILL AUDIO is committed to assisting Christians who desire to move from thoughtless consumption of contemporary culture to a vantage point of thoughtful engagement. We believe that fulfilling the commands to love God and neighbor requires that we pay careful attention to the neighborhood: that is, every sphere of human life where God is either glorified or despised, where neighbors are either edified or undermined.

A new section of the website—Writings & Videos—is available now which contains print, audio, and video interviews with Ken Myers in the guest seat, along with other resources.
The MARS HILL AUDIO Journal is an "audio magazine" featuring over one hundred minutes of conversation on each bimonthly CD or MP3 edition. The CD edition is being duplicated and will be available in a couple weeks; the MP3 edition is available now.
Guests on the current issue (Volume 117) include: Matthew Dickerson, on the likenesses between Beowulf and three of Tolkien's heroes, and on how (despite Peter Jackson's rendition) The Lord of the Rings is more interested in virtue than in military exploits; Jennifer Woodruff Tait, on how assumptions about the nature of moral knowledge compelled Victorian Methodists and others to substitute grape juice for wine in celebrating the Lord's Supper; Jeffry Davis & Philip Ryken, on why the liberal arts ought to be recognized as a calling that enriches Christian living; and Robert P. George, on the 2013 Supreme Court cases addressing same-sex marriage, the differences between the historic view of marriage as a conjugal and comprehensive relationship and the "revisionist" view, and the consequences of redefining marriage.

At least in the lives of many Americans, books in particular and reading in general is on the decline. We think this is not a good thing (and not just because our business involves the recommending of books). We think that Christian leaders in churches, schools, and parachurch organizations should recognize this as a challenge to be confronted confidently, not a condition to be met with acquiescence and accommodation. Indifference to aliteracy is not a good way to love our neighbors. In an effort to encourage like-minded advocates of reading, we've produced a new audio Anthology, "On Books and Reading." This program (on CD or downloadable MP3) features extracts from interviews from volumes 13, 90, and 94 of the Journal, as well as previously unheard "outtakes" from earlier interviews. Read more about this Anthology here.
