#157 Lost

Christians love Lost like they love 24. They're currently mourning the finale and discussing it with anyone who will sit still. They loved its arresting portrayal of journey and American folk eschatology but feel it lacked a solid worldview, to their chagrin. Christians love a solid worldview.

They object to the Universalist belief system they say is the overarching philosophy but its talk of the "next life" and the struggle for redemption made this series irresistible to Christians. Right now there is surely a book on how to find Jesus in "Lost" being rushed together by Zondervan or something.

(Jacob the immortal protector reads Everything That Rises Must Converge. Oh so rife with allegory!)
