Review:

The authors do an admirable job of culling various authors .[They] reaffirm that films contribute to fundamental questions and keep the debate going. Recommended. CHOICE

"Ortiz and Deacy offer a singularly rich analysis of the ways that theology and film interlace. Using Niebuhr′s Christ and Culture as an interpretive model, they put their fingers on the theological pulse of thousands of contemporary and classic, pop and art films with stunningly insightful success. Their command of both film language and divergent currents in contemporary theology allows them to respect each film as an artistic work in its own right which illuminates issues such as violence, women′s rights, the environment, and apocalyptic discourse. I highly recommend this thoughtful book for classroom use and just plain reading pleasure." Sara Anson Vaux, Northwestern University

"It should hold much relevance for film students interested in theology, and vice versa, as it offers a range of challenging ideas and perspectives on the subject." M/C Reviews

From the Back Cover:

This textbook is the ideal introduction to exploring how film can enrich our study of theology, opening up debates surrounding contemporary culture and theological inquiry. It uses film to challenge the sacred/secular divide, spanning a broad range of themes from religion and violence, eschatology, war, and peace to justice, feminism, and the environment.

The accessible structure lays out both the methods and theological perspectives required for understanding theology through film. Examples of films discussed range from Unforgiven, Jarhead, and The Passion of the Christ, to An Inconvenient Truth, Something′s Gotta Give, and Vanilla Sky. The book is also accompanied by website resources available at www.blackwellpublishing.com/theologyandfilm.
