Last night I saw the academy-award-winning film, Life of Pi. I don’t want to spoil this intriguing movie for anyone who has not seen it, but I do want to invite comments about its theological implications.
At one crucial point, the protagonist says to the fellow who’s been interviewing him, “And so it goes with God.” (Some moviegoers hear, “And so it is with God.”)
Without giving away details of the story, if you have seen the film how do you interpret that statement?
I would prefer to limit this conversation to comments on the film rather than bringing in what the book says. The book and the film are two separate artistic works, and our discussion might become muddled if we bring in data from both of them.
