from Mission Impossible to the gospel…

Great point made in Ben Witherington’s review of the latest Mission Impossible film (starring Tom Cruise):

This movie, like Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, and to some degree like Sherlock Holmes deals with spies and undercover daring do and wickedness on the loose in the world. It seems to confirm what we already knew from the Christmas story— that our world is so messed up, it needs a savior to rescue it. But only a Christ figure, not a Cruise missile could get that job done.
