Well, Landon’s comments weren’t lost on other critics out there. Check out film critic Jeffrey Overstreet’s response—and again here. After the word “anti-evangelical” starts floating around, Overstreet writes an absolutely great and fabulous must-read post (okay, I admit I really resonated with Overstreet’s perspective) which includes “The Evangelical Approach” to his film reviews. Overstreet also points to Christianity Today editor Mark Moring’s response. And then Edwards responds [Update: Hmm, it appears that response has been taken down from his site--anyone else know for sure? Update 2: Ah, here it (or at least it seems to be the same one) is, courtesy of Overstreet]. Meantime, Chattaway ruminates some more.
If you are at all interested in the relationship of Christians to culture, art, film and novels, this conversation is a must read. I darn’t summarize it. Take some time to muse through it.
