Two (make that three) good reasons to watch this “Hellbound?” outtake

First reason: It offers a fantastic introduction to Rene Girard’s mimetic theory of violence and religion, delivered by none other than Michael Hardin, mimetic theorist and co-founder of Preaching Peace.

(The book pictured here was one of my favorites.) Long before I’d seen any [Read More...]
