Faith and Art

I recently stumbled upon an interesting Web site that addresses art, literature, music, and movies from a Christian perspective. Fuse Magazine (no longer active) called itself “the exact point where art and faith intersect. A ‘fusion,’ if you will, of two important concepts that we believe are inextricably linked.” I got there by Googling a book…

Strange and Stranger Still

The Internet, while often called a vast wasteland, confounds that appellation because it contains so many surprises, so many astonishing and bizarrely encapsolated minutia, most of which are found serendipitously (like most of the fun things in life) at least for those of us with a sense of adventure given feet by our imaginations.

I would like to specifically direct you to the article on the “state” of Christian entertainment. It is food for thought both for consumers…
