Publisher's Description

A Christian look at the modern art of film.


For as long as the church has existed, Christians have embraced the arts as a poignant and effective method for telling the story of the Bible. From visual displays to music to literature, no organization has been more responsible than the church for commissioning and appreciating artists and their craft. Ironically, no organization has been more responsible than the church for suppressing (and even persecuting) artists and art forms it deems inappropriate.

So, what is a proper relationship between the church and the arts? How has that relationship changed in recent generations? This study addresses these questions and more in reference to Christians and their interaction with modern forms of art, like movies.
