About: Geez is non-profit, ad-free, printed on 100 per cent post-consumer recycled paper, and operated out of the second floor of a co-operative house on Home Street in Winnipeg. The editors say, “We’ve set up camp in the outback of the spiritual commons. A bustling spot for the over-churched, out-churched, un-churched and maybe even the un-churchable.”
Analysis: Geez is a Canadian Christian publication. It makes for very thought-provoking reading, and many of the essays in it are top-of-the-line. The staff seems very dedicated to living out the “holy mischief” the magazine is devoted to, and they manage to maintain a sense of humor, which is encouraging.
Calvin Connection: Free copies of Geez were distributed at the last Festival of Faith and Music, and even though Hekman doesn’t subscribe, you might be able to scrounge up a few copies around campus/the English department.
