Three posts to set alongside each other:
- Sonia Saraiya at The AV Club reflecting on the violence done to bodies in the TV production of Game of Thrones
- Richard Beck commenting on two posts from Andrew Krinks entitled “Soulful Resistance: Theological Body Knowledge on Tennessee’s Death Row” (Part 1, Part 2)
- My own Advent reflection on Incarnation and Chronic Illness at Thinking Faith
I feel that if those three articles together were rubbed together something interesting might spark.
Elaine Scarry‘s challenging and insightful book provides a backdrop.
