Thanks to “God and Culture” Show Host Paul Edwards

Many, many thanks to Paul Edwards for being a gracious host, generous with his time, and thoughtful with his questions on the God and Culture radio program in Detroit.

You can listen in on our conversations…

  • here, on Tuesday’s show, where I come on around the 1-hour 45-minute mark, and then talk like a madman until I run Paul right into his show-closing music (Yikes! I’m sorry!)
  • and here … where I’m the first batter to the plate, and we wrapped up with plenty of time for Paul to announce his support for a Presidential candidate.

We talked about The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, about what it means to have a “Christian perspective on movies,” and then, well… we talk a lot about Auralia’s Colors.

But I am especially grateful that Paul and I had a chance to put behind us a rather unpleasant debate we had last year. In case you remember that, know this: I am humbled and moved by Paul’s willingness to welcome me to his program, and to form a friendship, in spite of the fact that our introduction to each other was a rather turbulent conversation.

So, thank you, Paul. I appreciated your insights and your thoughtful questions this week. I’m grateful for your patience with me. And I look forward to our next conversation.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
