Quote of the Day: Steve Jobs and Secular Hope

Andy Crouch, author of a book about creativity and culture for Christians, has a lovely piece about the role Steve Jobs plays in the American consciousness.

"The truth is that as remarkable as Steve Jobs has been in many ways--as a designer, an innovator, a (ruthless and demanding) leader--his most singular quality has been his ability to articulate a perfectly secular form of hope. Nothing exemplifies that ability more than Apple's early logo, which slapped a rainbow on the very archetype of human fallenness and failure--the bitten fruit--and made it a sign of promise and progress."
