Item Description...
Overview
This book follows in the path blazed by Jewett's St. Paul at the Movies. It questions the "Hollywood Hermeneutic" that too often views the Bible as prop, but also recognizes the contributions of movies that successfully integrate the Bible as a plot-making device. Includes short chapters on the Bible's role in such movies as The Truman Show, Pleasantville, The Sixth Sense, Magnolia, Pulp Fiction, The Miracle-Maker, Prince of Egypt, The Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption, Breaking the Waves, Pretty Woman, The Apostle, Blue, The Matrix, and Deep Impact.

Publishers Description

Eloquently written and meticulously researched, "Scripture on the Silver Screen" offers all students of Scripture--whether in an academic classroom or at home--an inviting new way to further their biblical literacy. It questions the "Hollywoood Hermeneutic" that too often views the Bible as prop, but also recognizes the contributions of movies that successfully integrate the Bible as a plot-making device. Each chapter begins with a discussion on the focal Bible passage, placing it in its literary and historical context, followed by a summary of the film and its main themes.

Among the Very Best Available  Feb 28, 2007
Very useful for the thoughtful viewer. As an academic librarian and the co-host of a television film talk show, this book is essential. Very informative and nuanced, this book sets an example for understanding the messages in the movies. Also, the book is useful for group and classroom study.
