Long before I launched this blog last year, one site, in particular, was making connections between anime and Christianity. In the “Spiritual Bridges,” Scot Eaton of Worship and the Arts, a “missional blog focused on Christ-centered worship, the arts, & Japan,” draws such parallels. His site has a ton of great posts (I’ll link to more in the future).
One of the my favorites, though, wasn’t written by Scot, but by a guest blogger, Robin White. His article is about Goro Miyazaki’s Tales From Earthsea. Having recently watch the movie (and really enjoying it – at least until the final act), I was eager to see what “bridges” the author would make. White points out a number of parallels between events in the film and those in the Bible, including comparisons with Adam and Eve and discussion about eternal life.
Please give it a read!
