The Red Egg Review
« on: March 30, 2013, 05:09:06 PM »
The Red Egg Review, a new Orthodox Christian online journal, has launched its first issue. From the journal's "About" section:

Quote
It is our hope that The Red Egg Review will move forward the discussion about the relationship between the Church and the world. We seek to stimulate conversation in universities, seminaries, parishes, homes, and workplaces. We will discuss the art, ideas, and challenges of everyday American culture, the Fathers and Mothers of the Church, and modern Orthodox voices. Our perspective is and will continue to be rooted in our faith in Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, and in the tradition of His Church. Like our Fathers and Mothers, we remain open to the insights and experiences of other Christian traditions and of all human beings.]It is our hope that The Red Egg Review will move forward the discussion about the relationship between the Church and the world.

I was expecting something about the Faberge eggs, but then I remembered the Pascha eggs. :)

Excellent! This is the sort of thing I've been waiting/hoping for.

Okay, so I just read the article titled "A Consumers' Utopia" and was sorely disappointed to find the connection to Orthodoxy relegated to a footnote. Is this a platform for leftist political theorists disguised as an Orthodox journal, or am I missing something?

I was missing a lot of things at your age, but you are right, the magazine leans left. It's good to see a counter-balance to those loud mouths that would make this religion into a right wing sect. it doesn't just happen in the US though.

It's a book review. I glanced at that one and decided not to read it. I did like Remember the Prisoners.

I don't care if it leans left, what I find disconcerting is the writer's failure to draw relevant (or any) parallels between his subject and Orthodox themes.

However the next article I read, about the "iconography" implicit in Facebook and pornography, was much better in that regard.

I wouldn't view the blogs of a few American clergy or a competing forum here as being representative of all American Orthodox. I agree that a counter balancing view is good to see though. The right wing sect types simply tend to make louder noise.

But there's not even any indication that the author of that article is Orthodox in the first place. You could just as easily Google "socialist critique of modern capitalism" to read something similar.

Hi NightOwl, I am trying to figure out why you are perseverating over this one book report by a graduate student who is probably not much older than you are. I am coming up empty handed. Are you going to start critiquing posts on this forum that lack a direct connection to Orthodoxy (I do not recommend it as it would require a Promethean effort)?

I am still not going to read it despite your comments. Maybe it did not meet your expectations, maybe you want it all now rather than piecemeal.

You will be a happier person if you are grateful for what you receive rather than being displeased for not getting exactly what you wanted.

Just my somewhat confused perspective, since I really do not understand what the issue is.

^ I'll let NightOwl speak for himself, but what I got from his comment is that if a journal claims to be affiliated or inspired by Orthodoxy, articles should reflect that. 

He wasn't critiquing the article (or perseverating, in my opinion), but simply inquiring about the publication and noting that there appears to be little to no indication of Orthodoxy.  Why not let him ask his questions and make his observations?

Repetition is a necessary evil when people are missing the point, and irrelevancy in this context is a perfectly acceptable criticism. Did you read the OP?

I don't know what got you so irritated, or how you think age has something to do with this, or why you feel the need to pass down life lessons over the discussion of an online journal article (I knew there was a reason I hid my age on this forum).

Sorry NightOwl, I regretted my post as well.  I did read the OP and also the about section of the site.

The layout is much better than I expected. My favorite article so far is "Miracle Cures and Other Tools of Exploitation."

Felt that "How to be a Human Being" touched on but failed to address the cognitive psychological place of icons, re:icons and similarly designed Hellenistic art in Hinduism and Shia Islam; also regarding "fantasia" vs. imagination.

I would like to expand on this in the future, maybe with my own article, but I would need my artist friend by my side and a bunch of japanese psych. journal papers.

I grew up in a particular religious tradition, and the older I got the less I appreciated heavy-handed 'this is how our religion sees things and that's why you should too' articles. I haven't had the chance to go through this first (and long-awaited) issue yet, but was there an issue with the conclusions of the article itself? Was it in agreement with how we ought to believe and/or live as Orthodox Christians? If it was Orthodox, then I'm not sure what the issue is, one footnote or no...
