From the start of the film industry at the turn of the twentieth century the church has played a role in the industry. Catholics, Christians and Evangelicals have all played various roles at different times in helping to allow the Industry to be looked at as a legitimate one.
Various Church groups at various times also worked to get the industry to act in a way they saw more appropriate going as far as to boycott the Industry.
This books shows us how Christians can benefit critically , reading, hearing and reviewing popular film. William Romanowski shows us the benefits of a faith based approach that centers on art and perspective showing how the Christian faith contribute to the movie going experience, allowing us a deeper understanding of movies and life. The author draws examples from classic and contemporary movies to bring these lessons to light.
Cinematic. Faith was a unique, thought provoking look at the Film Industry in the context of the Christian perspective and I find it worthy of five out of five stars!
