Reviews - What do our customers think?
|Nothing wrong, but not too deep. Aug 25, 2006|
|Perhaps my problem with this book was simply a matter of expectations. If you are looking for a book that will illustrate concepts in the Apostle's creed with various films, perhaps as an outreach tool or for people unversed in Christian Theology, then this book is undoubtably for you. If, however, you are looking for a book which either analyses film or theology in relation to each other with a goal towards a deeper understanding of how Christian theology can be lived and expressed in contemporary life, this book is not for you. If that is what you want (as I did), I'd recommend Marsh and Ortiz's "Explorations in Theology and Film: Movies and Meaning" or Martin's "Screening the Sacred" instead.|
