New Guest Reviewers

Joining such insightful reviewers as J. Robert Parks, Ron Reed, and Stef Loy, who have contributed guest reviews to Looking Closer in the past, I’m pleased to share some new reviews by Kenneth R. Morefield, Ph.D., who writes at Viewpoint.

I’ve posted his reviews of Forgiving Dr. Mengele and An Inconvenient Truth… alongside the aforementioned Superman Returns review by Greg Wright, another reviewer whose work at Hollywood Jesus I have found rewarding.

Check them out. Looking Closer isn’t meant to be a place for one opinion. It’s meant to provoke reflection and discussion.

Read. Consider. Discuss. Rinse. Repeat.

And remember, I’m happy to consider other reviews for publication. If you want to write a review, send me a draft and I’ll get back to you.
