Kutter Callaway joins me to discuss his book, The Aesthetics of Atheism, co-authored by Barry Taylor. We explore the questions raised in the book about the radical idea that what if Christianity needs atheism. Kutter explains how the aesthetic dimension of the absence of God or religion in popular culture, actually provides deeper theological insight and points to the core of Christianity. We discuss the contemporary horror genre such as the Netflix series, Stranger Things, and how the art we are seeing today is a response to the repeated trauma this next generation is experiencing.
Kutter is assistant professor of theology and culture at Fuller Theological Seminary. He is also co-director of the Reel Spirituality Institute and serves as a consultant and advisory board member for various film and TV studios. He has authored several other books which you can find on his website.
