SIDELIGHTS: C. K. Robertson told CA: "As a priest and communications professor/consultant, I find great pleasure in bridging these two worlds, exploring how religious belief interacts with popular culture, both in present-day culture and in the ancient world. I find great energy in moving between a work entirely of my own as author and an edited work, where I can benefit from the wisdom and experience of others. I also love to bridge the worlds of writing and speaking/consulting, as my research gives foundational support to my work with people, which, I hope, in turn energizes me and infuses my writing with a sense of relevance."
