Michael W. Smith has been a staple of Christian music for years. 33 years to be exact, singing his first recording contract in 1981 with Meadowgreen music. Naturally, when he's been performing for this long, his concerts are something to see.

Sue Sorensen, Associate Professor of English at the Canadian Mennonite University, knows this well and addresses that very topic with her first academic work titled, "The Collar: Reading Christian Ministry in Fiction, Television, and Film".
