I believe that, to some degree, an offending strangeness might be the surest means to seeing, hearing, and receiving a redeeming witness — a witness at work, for instance, in what Karl Barth refers to as the strange new world of the Bible. Does the Bible in any way dislocate our imaginations or prove to be an affront to what we consider seemly? In a certain sense, we might say that weirdness alone redeems, because it is that which strikes us as unseemly that forces us to redeem — or reevaluate — our vision of reality, our sense of what’s appropriate. Are we willing to have our vision undone and redeemed? Are we up for the religious experience of feeling offended?
