Of course, predictably, some theologically and politically conservative viewers and commentators condemned JoA for its failure to conform to Christian scripture and doctrine, particularly in its depiction of the divine. And, also predictably, liberal Christian authors and viewers tended to enjoy Joan’s contentious conversations with God and were not particularly troubled by the theological implications of the ecumenical God presented in JoA. But these arguments, influenced as they were by “the culture wars,” failed to fully acknowledge the remarkably innovative presence of JoA on network television.

And this was groundbreaking in terms of how television depicts God and God’s call. ” To suggest to prime-time viewers of a network television show that an unknowable but visible God, who sees and is seen and is among us always, in all kinds of forms, participating in our everyday life but not interfering with humanity’s free will, and who nonetheless calls us into service, was a significant new way of televising ideas about God. JoA took youth culture seriously as well. JoA spoke in the sarcastic, cynical, pop-culture-referential language of American teenagers in the twentyfirst century.

Little Girl/God: A perfect one. Trust me. [Long pause] Joan: [Impatiently] I’m listening. . 16 Viewers and critics have sometimes wondered why Joan does not press further, why she seems so oblivious to the enormous implications of her conversations with God, why she seems so self-absorbed and moody; mature and thoughtful one minute, immature and insensitive the next. 18 In the presence of God Joan acts just exactly as many other typical teenagers would. Joan’s youth is absolutely central to JoA.
