Seeing as God Sees
"Against the background of my own instinctive wariness about supposing you can get a hold on everything at once, it was fascinating to watch Terrence Malick’s 2011 film The Tree of Life. It is an extraordinary film—too long, perhaps, but beautiful, baffling, strangely compelling. And one way of understanding it is as an attempt to present a vision of, precisely, everything." So writes Karen Kilby in her piece on the compelling and elusive film -- ideas that are echoed in contributions from Luke Timothy Johnson and Bernard G. Prusak.
