Product Description

Thoughtful Christians realize they can learn much from movies---they influence our culture and help shape our perceptions on everything from relationships and careers to good and evil. Robert K. Johnston's insightful Reel Spirituality will heighten your sensitivity to cinematic statements about the human condition and theological truths. This second edition cites 200 new movies and encourages readers to ponder movie themes that permeate our culture as well as motion pictures that have demonstrated power to shape our perceptions of everything from relationships and careers to good and evil. Reel Spirituality, a volume from the Engaging Culture series, is the perfect catalyst for dialogue and discipleship among moviegoers, church-based study groups, and religious film and arts groups.

About the Series

The Engaging Culture series is designed to help Christians respond with theological discernment to our contemporary culture. Each volume explores particular cultural expressions, seeking to discover God's presence in the world and to involve readers in sympathetic dialogue and active discipleship.
