Open Access Art, Theology & Religious Studies
Far-Near Books is a book publishing imprint of Are Not Books & Publications.
Far-Near.org examines the intersection of theology & religious studies with contemporary art, design, books, music, movies, material culture, and cultural criticism.
A common theme in all our inquiries is a critical examination of the widely held belief that cultural changes precede changes in the public square—political policy and popular morality.
The assumption that art affects morality has been at the center of the “culture wars” in the United States since the 1960s.
