I am not the only one, of course, who was stirred up by Eugene’s earthy, incarnational, poetic theological perspective. U2’s Bono shares my appreciation for Eugene’s work. In recent media coverage, including a moment where Bono dedicated a live song last week to Peterson’s legacy, I remembered David Taylor’s documentary. David is a professor at Fuller Seminary and an alum (like me) of Regent College. He managed to orchestrate a meeting between Bono and Eugene in Montana to talk about the Psalms. I think this is a lovely conversation on poetry, art, and biblical song with an evocative message to the church and a prophetic calling to Christian artists.
I believe in open access scholarship. Because of this, since 2011 I have made A Pilgrim in Narnia free with nearly 1,000 posts on faith, fiction, and fantasy. Please consider sharing my work so others can enjoy it.
“A Pilgrim in Narnia” is a blog project in reading and talking about the work of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the worlds they touched. As a "Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction" blog, we cover topics like children’s literature, apologetics and philosophy, myths and mythology, fantasy, theology, cultural critique, art and writing.
This blog includes my thoughts as I read through Lewis and Tolkien and reflect on my own life and culture. In this sense, I am a Pilgrim in Narnia--or Middle Earth, or Fairyland. I am often peeking inside of wardrobes, looking for magic bricks in urban alleys, or rooting through yard sale boxes for old rings. If something here captures your imagination, leave a comment, “like” a post, share with your friends, or sign up to receive Narnian Pilgrim posts in your email box.
