"In Christian tradition, Jesus Christ is The Logos, The Word. But he's now about to become the logo of the biggest marketing campaign ever seen in Australia, called Jesus. All About Life. Daniel Willis of the Bible Society NSW, and Sharon Williams of Taurus Marketing, are co-ordinating a media blitz that aims to revive Jesus' popularity with the public. But how will the campaign address the requirement of Christians to change the world for the better? As well, speaking from Montreal in Canada, is Shirley Steinberg of McGill University.
