The Semiotics Of Hope
Via Jesus Politics comes an absolutely must read article by Jonathan Raban titled "The Church of Obama". It's a brilliant exposition of the semiotics of Obama's message of hope, from its roots in black liberation theology to its broader application to the national political narrative. Regular readers of the site know that I don't use these words lightly. If you think you've read everything there is to read about Barack Obama, or if you think you can't bear to read another thing about Barack Obama, click through anyway. You won't regret it.
