VFTB 284: Judd Burton – Halloween and the Van Helsing Way

halloweenIT’S DIFFICULT for parents to fight the flood of images that surround us at this time of year–witches, vampires, werewolves, and ghosts are everywhere, and thanks to popular books and movies aimed at teens and young adults, trying to explain why dressing as, say, a creature that consumes human blood might not be appropriate.

Our friendly neighborhood Ph.D., anthropologist Dr. Judd Burton, author of Interview With the Giant: Ethnohistorical Notes on the Nephilim, joins us for a discussion of Halloween, it’s popularity in a nominally Christian culture, and something Judd calls the “Van Helsing Way”.

Please join Derek and Sharon Gilbert each Sunday for the Gilbert House Fellowship, our weekly Bible study podcast. Log on to www.GilbertHouse.org for more details.

Discuss these topics at the VFTB Facebook page and check out the great Christian podcasters at the Revelations Radio Network.
