River Tam and Shepherd Book Discuss the Bible on Firefly

Yesterday’s post reminded me of a great scene from the short-lived but brilliant show, Firefly. Leave it to an atheist like Joss Whedon to explain my faith better than I can… what’s up with that?

"You don't fix the Bible... it fixes you."

this is one of my favorite scenes from "firefly" - i think the shepherd is one of the best tv renditions of a christian out there. i hated that this series only went for one season. what were they thinking?!

I have no idea what they were thinking; but I didn't even hear of the series until after it had been cancelled (I was living in Canada and first saw it as reruns on Space). Firefly, Jericho, Journeyman, why do so many great shows get canned?

But I agree about Book; it's unfortunate he was given such a diminished role in Serenity. Even when he did appear, he seemed a bit toned down compared to scenes like this. The movie was still excellent though, so I can't complain much.
