"Christianity Today" magazine features an article by managing editor Todd Hertz on "Jon & Kate Plus Eight" in their latest issue. You can read the article online at: http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2008/november/15.76.html.
Obviously, we have seen a lot of articles on the Gosselins recently. What sets this piece apart, of course, is its focus on the family's faith. It gives us the opportunity to ask our posters to weigh in some pretty interesting aspects of the Gosselins' story. How do you think the Gosselins represent their faith? Would you like to see the show allow the Gosselins to express their faith more openly and on a more consistent basis? Lastly, the author is pretty generous is his estimation of the reasons the Gosselins have decided to participate in the show - "to show God's love to others." We don't believe we have heard the Gosselins state this as one of the reasons for doing the show, but that said, do you believe they have succeeded in showcasing "God's love" and have helped others with their honest portrayal of a Christian couple that is far from perfect, but still loves each other and strives to do their best?
