Product Description

A growing number of church leaders are discovering that many films are able to impact viewers with Gospel truths almost as well as a good sermon. Former pastor and longtime film reviewer Ed McNulty offers this constructive guide to help church leaders enter into dialogue with some of the films produced by Hollywood and independent filmmakers. McNulty carefully crafts a theology of movies and then provides practical suggestions for creating and leading movie discussions with groups. In addition, he provides people from all across the theological spectrum with a framework to understand whether the overall message of a film outweighs concerns over profanity, violence, or sex in the film. He concludes by introducing twenty-seven films and including provocative questions about each that will prepare leaders to assemble and facilitate a group. Popular films explored include The Color Purple, Crash, Hotel Rwanda, The Matrix, Million Dollar Baby, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, and The Shawshank Redemption.
