Geeks Of Christ Presents…March 16, 2012

Here’s a list of what I’ve been reading, listening to, watching, whatever from around the web.

A Mind-Blowing Vision of God

by Mark D. Roberts:

“As I watched, suddenly a driving storm came out of the north, a great cloud flashing fire, with brightness all around. At its center, in the middle of the fire, there was something like gleaming amber.”

How The Heck Did Jor-El Find Earth?

by Ryan Haupt:

“Strap in, we’re going back to science-town today. I have recently been plagued by a pressing question.Planetary detection has taken leaps and bounds in the past decade.”

The Scale of the Universe 2

by Craig Huang:

Enjoy this interactive map of the universe! And see if you can spot some of the geek easter eggs!

Who’s Afraid of Narrative?

by Stephen Nichols:

“Theologies are a language of the guild, by the guild, for the guild. Conversely, mention creation, fall, redemption, and restoration and you’re speaking a language of the people, by the people, for the people.”

What Can Preachers Learn From Captain Kirk

by Michael Poteet:

“Now, not much preaching goes on in Gene Roddenberry’s wonderful but thoroughly secular humanist vision of the future. Federation starships’ crews don’t include chaplains (although the original Enterprise did have a chapel, and I don’t just mean Nurse Christine).”

The Problem With Karen Kingsbury’s Princess Books

by Amy Lepine Peterson:

“This morning I was a scientist studying lions and a magic doctor healing giraffes. I was a three-year-old girl holding a baby jaguar; I was a pony running through a candy forest. I was friends with a lion, a little girl, a pony, and finally, a princess.”

iFanboy Make Comics Podcast #13 – Story

Featuring Josh Flanagan and Andy Schmidt

“It’s all about story, and if you’re making comics, that needs to be foremost on your mind. What’s the story? You’ve got beautiful art, crackling dialog, and the best cover on the stands, but if the story isn’t there, it’s all for nothing.”
