19 Aug 2011 Audio: Jon Dykstra on the Overton Window
Christian principles are not very popular in our secular world. So how do we go about promoting them? How do we effectively shift an idea in society from radical, to sensible, to policy? In this 14 minute talk, Jon Dykstra explains a theory known as the Overton Window and how we can apply it to the political and social issues facing Canada.

Dykstra is the editor of Reformed Perspective Magazine. He delivered this talk at four towns and cities as part of ARPA Canada’s spring Alberta tour in April. We highly recommend listening to the audio version and sharing it with your friends, as it cuts through many of the common fallacies about effectiveness.
