Product Description

Covering many genres from science-fiction (Contact) to classics (To Kill A Mockingbird), Mraz, who has done extensive graduate work in film and taught theology and movie courses in a variety of settings, draws out spiritual applications for 12 films. While many criticize Hollywood for its obvious excesses and indulgences, the author takes a different tack, zeroing in on sometimes elusive themes associated with faith and allowing the films to tell their stories in context. Also, she does not attempt to dissect the movies any further, such as for historical accuracy (in Shadowlands and Amadeus for example), and lets them stand - or fall - on their own merits.

Publisher's Description

Using movies to explore faith and spirituality issues is in vogue today, but it's difficult to find the time to show and discuss a full-length film in most adult or youth classes or groups. Barbara Mraz, a deacon in the Episcopal Church and a high school teacher, found a solution.

This practical, hands-on book will help Christian educators, youth leaders, and anyone wishing to use films as teaching tools to explore and discuss a film within the usual 40-50 minutes available. Mraz provides an introduction, related Scripture passages, carefully selected film segments (with VCR counter numbers and DVD settings), and thought-provoking discussion questions for twelve movies that explore topics such as temptation, duty, forgiveness, redemption, gratitude, and other important Christian values. This proven technique – one Mraz has been using for years – requires a minimum of preparation and generates the maximum in participation. Industry film ratings are provided so leaders can pick appropriate films.
