Product Description

Dead Poets Society, Star Wars, Amadeus, Ordinary People---movies show concern for deep human issues, just as the Bible does. Jewett takes Paul's approach of interpreting the Gospel on other people's turf to begin a dialogue between Christianity and popular culture. Treating films and biblical passages with equal respect, he pairs each major Pauline theme with a companion film. He points out the similarities and divergences between the two, turning movies into a source of discovering and debating moral, cultural, and religious issues. Start a dialogue at your lunch table! 192 pages, softcover from Westminster.

Publisher's Description

Star Wars, Amadeus, A Separate Place, Tender Mercies, Grand Canyon, Tootsie, Ordinary People, Empire of the Sun, Pale Rider, Red Dawn, and Dead Poets Society--all these movies show concern for deep human issues also treated in the Bible. The films provide evidence that many of the apostle Paul's themes in his New Testament letters are relevant for today. Contemporary movies, according to Robert Jewett, influence many Americans more than their formal education or religious training. And, since Paul interpreted the gospel on other people's turf, Jewett believes that today his forum would involve the movies, a primary source of discovering and debating important moral, cultural, and religious issues. Jewett treats film and biblical passages with equal respect. He brings their ideas and metaphors into relationship so that new insights emerge about both the ancient texts and the American cultural situation.
