Hunger Games, dystopias and sin

This incisive article contrasts two classic views of degraded human society—George Orwell’s (1984) and Aldous Huxley’s (Brave New World)—then uses The Hunger Games to flesh them out. It finishes with this provocative Christian reflection: “All of which means that, if we are representing Jesus properly, there will be times when our work looks very similar to that of a secular human rights organization, as we seek release for captives. But there will also be times, if we are representing Jesus properly, when we look utterly inexplicable to those same organizations for our incessant talk of freedom from sin, the flesh, and the self.”
