Besides Laurie translating biblical scripture into the language and pop references of today, the event features contemporary Christian music from Third Day, Chris Tomlin, Relient K, Skillet and the Katinas. If this is the kind of thing that floats your ark, but you can't make it to Anaheim on those dates, the Harvest Crusade will also be presented via live Internet webcasts and hosted video podcasts.
