In everyday life we employ an astonishing, elusively complex and ultimately nonquantifiable array of resources in working to free ourselves, in attempts both banal and dramatic. Contemporary electronic media multiply these resources for the fashioning of freedom, however ambiguously. Film, music, home video, comic books: who are their authors and how are they used in everyday life? What problems do their uses create that become for us unsettled spiritual and intellectual spaces whose ground we find ourselves devoted to clearing? These concerns are of particular interest among some progressive theological educators. Perhaps chief among our central interests is the inquiry into modern resources for freeing pedagogical practices.
