Bruise my knees gettin’ down to pray: Preacher Season 1 (Part 2)

Last week, I started writing a post about theology in AMC’s Preacher, but as you can imagine, it got a little wordy, so I decided to split it into three parts to cover the six topics I’d loosely defined in the first post. (Part one of this series, if you missed it.)  Today’s post is gonna cover two more: Grace and mercy, and Calvinism, Unfortunately.

Trigger warning in the discussion below for suicide, and pedophilia. As before, spoilers for the entire season behind the jump.

Good Lord turned his back on me: Preacher, Season 1

By

It’s been 2 weeks since the season finale of Preacher aired, so it’s high time to talk about Preacher and its theology.  If you haven’t seen the first season of Preacher, on AMC, stop before you click the cut, go find it, watch it and then come back.  I’ll wait.  Go on.
