Sufjan Stevens on rock gods, Almighty God, and the scandal of Christ’s love

It’s amazing what Sufjan does with this interview.

These questions tell you a lot about the interviewer’s shoddy understanding of Christian faith.

And yet Stevens responds with such patience, and such insightful, revealing answers that it’s all worth reading.

I’m already enthralled by his music. But I’m increasingly impressed by the guy himself. It’s rare to find an artist who is also so eloquent, thoughtful, an uninhibited about his faith. None of this “Faith is personal and so I’m not going to talk about it” crap.
