Week 10 – Response to Ben V: Week 10 – Wednesday

Ben brought up our closing conversation in class around the fan fiction phenomenon around cult classics like Star Trek and Star Wars. In particular, those stories that might develop around the stories of the Biblical narratives. However, as I was thinking about it, we have some of these artistic licenses amidst already: some of the material in The Prince of Egypt or other Biblically based movies, historical fiction based on Old Testament times and characters (my wife has read a couple but I can’t remember the series title), and most notably in my opinion is the famous Max Lucado. Lucado has quite a following of which many would say is “light” on theology, but adds a depth and richness in story that many find fills in the dimensions of Scriptural narrative. (I’m not real big on him, myself…)
