Review

Who is Jesus? What is Theology? Can these answers be found in a movie? The author agrees with Tolkien in that all mythos reflects our deep-seeded affinity to the Gospel. Even the Apostle Paul used familiar narratives to point people to the 'Unknown God.' Modern Films can also point people to the true and 'Unknown God.'

Format: Paperback
This book gives incredible perspective into the unique values that can be found within popular films. This book delves deep into many aspects of popular films discovering the "holy subtext." Like J.Jones says, experiencing this book will change the way you view movies. This book will make an excellent supplement to film goers, film students, and film makers alike.

Dr. Branch,

Once again your insights do not disappoint. You have clearly depicted the underline nuances of cinema to the degree that
I will never see film in the same way again. You have taken all of knowledge and have divulged the behind the scenes truths
to specific movies yet this helps to view it in all movies. It was eye opening and exciting. Thank you!
