HOLLYWOOD, CA – Dr. Ted Baehr, founder and publisher of Movieguide®, will be the keynote speaker May 10 at the 4th installment of the Dean's Distinguished Lecture Series event at Pepperdine University from Malibu, California at its Graduate Campus in West Los Angeles.
Dr. Baehr will bring his research findings from more than 40 years of detailed study of culture and the entertainment industry. Unique to Movieguide® is Dr. Baehr’s goal of redeeming the values of the media while educating moviegoers on Media Wisdom to apply biblical principles of discernment. Dr. Baehr analyzes the moral content, theology, and worldviews presented in the hundreds of stories created each year by the entertainment community.
“It’s an honor to be a part of this Lecture Series. We have enjoyed a great relationship with Pepperdine and I’m looking forward to the evening,” says Dr. Baehr.
The Distinguished Lecture Series brings leading agents of change to the Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP) to discuss the challenges and opportunities in servant-leadership in communities across the world. Created in 2010, the Dean's Distinguished Lecture Series helps support the GSEP mission of educating students to inspire lasting change in their communities and lead lives of service, purpose, and leadership.
Dr. Baehr is chairman of the Christian Film & Television Commission® (CFTVC) ministry and its family guide to movies, Movieguide® (www.movieguide.org). CFTVC and Movieguide® are an international non-profit ministry dedicated to “redeeming the values of the entertainment industry, according to biblical principles, by influencing industry executives and by informing and equipping the public about the influence of the entertainment media.”
Every year, Movieguide® publishes its Report to the Entertainment Industry, a comprehensive economic analysis showing that people in the United States and overseas prefer family-friendly, morally uplifting movies and DVDs extolling Christian, biblical, patriotic, conservative, and free market values.
