On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast:
Arguably appropriate that on Veteran’s Day we are talking about a movie that brings the reality of war and the horrors endured by those who served to the forefront. From heroism and sacrifice to doing what other people will not, Fury strides both sides of the pro/anti war conversation. If that wasn’t enough fodder for conversation, the film also gets us on the topic of God’s Justice, Shia LaBouf’s conversion, and, well, the fact that the movie is actually pretty darn good. Be warned: there also may be an overabundance of tank puns.
