Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The study of theology and film is fewer than three decades old. What, then, does the future hold for this evolving subject? In Reframing Theology and Film, Robert Johnston has drawn together more than a dozen scholars who regularly write and teach on the topic; their contributions explore how the discipline of theology and film can flourish and mature. The book also emphasizes the overlooked and undervalued aspects of theology and film. Contributors include:

Craig Detweiler
Barry Taylor
Gaye Williams Ortiz
Sara Anson Vaux
Gordon Lynch
Terry Lindvall
Clive Marsh
Rebecca Ver Straten-McSparran
Catherine M. Barsotti
John Lyden
Mitch Avila
Christopher Deacy
Rose Pacatte, FSP
Gerard Loughlin
Robert K. Johnston

"Here is a fine collection of essays full of rich detail, engaging insights, and provocative suggestions. The impressive cast of authors points beyond many of the usual frames of study, offering original perspectives and new approaches. Without exception, the chapters make a valuable contribution to ongoing dynamic conversations. This is a 'must-read' for anyone with an interest in film and theology."
--Jolyon Mitchell, senior lecturer, Edinburgh University; author of Media Violence and Christian Ethics and coeditor of The Religion and Film Reader

"In this single volume, the field of theology and film has matured from infancy to adulthood. Robert Johnston has assembled a top-notch group of scholars to set the stage for emerging directions in the field. No future writing on the topic can ignore the categories reframed by the contributors here."
--S. Brent Plate, editor of Representing Religion in World Cinema and coeditor of The Religion and Film Reader

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a thorough and engaging look at the root areas of our thinking about film that need to be re-examined. This is necessary in order to further our cultural understanding and involvement. Johnston is always clear-cut, methodical, and dead-on with his picking away at the layers of our mindset, and helping to mold that into a more flexible AND focused Christianly way of thinking.
