Who is Jack Bauer?
24 is a eight seasons television series that is very exciting and addictive. Great for adrenaline junkies. Recently Chris Armstrong commented on the theology of Jack Bauer, the hero of the series 24. He based that on the blog entry of John Shore who wrote that 24: We do know Jack Bauer. We ARE Jack Buer.
I do have concern if Jack Bauer is every person’s hero as portrait by John Shore. That means that we all subscribe to relative moralism and that the ends always justifies the means; that violence always solve the problems and the best way to deal with bad guys is to shoot them.
The series is rivetting and addictive. It is also about a psychopath who wears a badge.
