Daniel Siedell on some upcoming topics for the new Liberate website:

In addition, upcoming topics will include the importance of art for a theology of culture; an analysis of Andrei Tarkovsky’s The Passion of Andrei Rublev; disruptive grace in Vincent Gallo’s Buffalo 66; the grace-filled theology behind the baptism scene in O Brother Where Art Thou?; icons and evangelicals; the unpreached God of Melville’s Moby-Dick; the importance of criticism; and an appreciation of the recent work of Los Angeles-based artist Robyn O’Neil.

It’s also been a few weeks since my first of two blog posts on Thomas Kinkade’s work, The Dark Light of Thomas Kinkade, generated considerable attention and many comments, quite a few of them negative. I’ve waited to respond in order to offer more thoughtful observations, and I will be doing so in the next few days. Visit my first post on Kinkade this weekend and join the discussion of a topic that continues to receive attention.
