Brutal Unity Hangover Cure

I'm serially cheating on millinerd again (with these last four posts at First Thoughts).

Also, my review of Ephraim Radner's 500-page act of penance is in this month's Books & Culture (and can be read here).  So far as I know, the only way to recover from reading the book (which presses Christian complicity in Rwandan genocide, among other things) is by watching this.  Fifty times.

And even that won't do it really.

Update: Come to think of it, perhaps my colleague David Hooker's latest project, covered in this week's Chicago Trib, is the perfect encapsulation of and response to Radner, with Hooker emphasizing "...the Christian message that God loves us in spite of our sins."
