New IM Banner: Thanks to Michael Buckley

Artist Michael Buckley is a long-time IM/BHT reader and he has created a wonderful artistic representation of post-evangelicalism just for the IM banner. It’s meaningful, true and beautiful. The large version is available here for you to enjoy.

Thank you, Michael. You are a great friend to me and to the IM community.

  1. Stunning! Love it.

  2. Stunning is the word.

    As I said over on the BHT, I love it. It reminds me of Richard Linklater’s A Scanner Darkly.

  3. Wow. That is awesome.

  4. So… are there any Daniels here to interpret it for me?

  5. Not really about “interpretation.” It’s art. Captures the mood and direction of this site: Evangelicalism as we knew it is over.

    What do you see?

  6. That liquor shop right there on the left side is all the ammunition your critics need to blast you as being of the devil.

    Great design. I love it.

  7. As a mainliner, it reminds me of a lot of mainline churches I’ve been to where the neighborhood changed and the church didn’t adapt.

    Very good depiction.

  8. Wow, looks like my neighborhood! Great work!

  9. I see a historic old church building that needs love and renovation, in an area that I sure wouldn’t like to live. The backdrop reminds me of the outskirts of Chicago.

  10. Wow . . . I could have sworn that that’s a certain street in Seattle (where I live). Not so much the look – though at first glance there is some resemblance – but what it conveys.
