Can journalism be Christian? In The Jesus Newspaper, Michael Ray Smith explores this idea in a case study where a clergyman took over a mainstream newspaper for one week and produced what he considered was the kind of news Jesus would print, if he were an editor. The newspaper was a sensation, but Smith reveals the danger in neglecting story telling in news.
