About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has relaunched a bigger, better version of this blog at LookingCloser.org. The new Looking Closer doesn't have any of the trashy click-bait advertisements that you're probably seeing all over this Patheos page. So give yourself a break.

    Maybe this sounds silly, but I kept looking to see if the article would describe what the man was wearing. Black clerical perhaps instead of the long robe thing? The emphasis of the article was Fr. Holleran’s subtle degrees of semi-alienation from contemporary society (a bit of a stranger in a strange land), and so I feel that failing to describe what he was wearing detracted from that aspect of the article.
