God Spake: Always look on the bright side of life (Monty Python)
As if an omniscent God spake through Python films, comedians and had a sense of humour... 'What if God was one of us...' as Joan Osbourne sang. Whether riding the bus, or directing films, or writing music lyrics, what would He, or rather She say? This edition - 'Always look on the bright side of life' is a call to positivity and hope. Surely right in the middle of the wheelhouse of spirituality and religion. Perhaps She spoke through Monty Python in the epic comedy, 'Life of Brian'? Worried about offence and corporate reputation, EMI ran a mile from backing the movie when they visited the set and discovered what it was about. George Harrison and Handmade Films stepped in with £1m to get it released. You can think it is blasphemous, or that it is an insightful work of genius.
Art may offend, but that’s what art is all about - Art that makes you think. If it doesn't, it's not really art, is it?
Each edition is a one-off as each bible page relates somehow complements the meaning. You hold in your hands or hang on your wall, a poignant piece of cultural history, but also a powerful message about a more compassionate, inclusive future.
