in a world ruled by popular culture...
are two guys who want to help you keep
your eyes on the one who rules all
The Big Picture is a Christian insight into the galaxy of film, television and popular culture. Magazine editor Ben McEachen and scriptwriter Mark Hadley want to talk to whoever will listen about what we watch and consume - from the perspective of Christian truth, beliefs and teachings.
Their aim is simple: to help people live wholeheartedly for Jesus, in all areas of their lives. Including, you know, the latest TV series you are binging on.
Because no matter what you are viewing and what messages it broadcasts, "the big picture" remains the same - God is the director of the universe; His Son Jesus is Lord over all; and the meaning of life is anchored in the generous, saving grace he offers to us all.
Mark Hadley has been writing professionally for more than 20 years. He has been a journalist for most of that time, employed by a range of prominent radio, television and web publications including the ABC. He also has scripted and produced television series and documentaries all over the world for the Seven, Nine and Ten Networks, as well as prominent Christian organisations. In addition, Mark has been reviewing films, television programs and children’s books for the past ten years for Australian papers and magazines, nationally syndicated radio programs and internationally read web sites.
Ben McEachen is a professional film reviewer. Seriously. That's a real, paying job. And he's even been at it for more than a decade. Yowzer. He has been editor at Empire magazine, film editor at The Advertiser, lead critic for several News Ltd Sunday papers and a regular fixture on 2GB, ABC and Showtime. Ben also contributes Christian-flavoured film reviews to Eternity newspaper, Hope 103.2 FM, War Cry and Insights magazines.
Ben has a Bachelor of Theology, from Moore Theological College, Sydney.
