Tarkovsky, “Stalker”, and Christian Art: Approaching Truth in Humility

I’ve never seen “Stalker” (even being married to someone from the former USSR), but now I want to. I especially appreciate the analysis of modern Christian culture – and our desire to make the complex simple.

Do we do this to make God’s truths more manageable? To make it easier to consume? But is God manageable? Should God be easy to consume?

Maybe he should be. After all, God humbled himself and became a man – he became one of us – and in doing so he helped us understand him better. That was the complex becoming simpler.

But even so, weren’t people perplexed by him most of the time, even though he was one of us?

Great article Nick!
