Incarnation and nudity

From the Image Journal’s Good Letters blog, a well-written commentary on nudity from a Christian perspective. It was written by Laura Bramon Good and talks about her growing up in a household where her mother was anything but shy with her body. The entry continues with Good talking about her sister, a painter, and a series of paintings that deal with “women and men, their bodies, and their need for and confusion over the other.”

No commentary from me, just passing the article along.
