Editorial Reviews

Review

"Rindge is both sensitive and insightful in his film analysis, and the discussion of these movies as parables takes the analysis to a whole new level of sophistication. This book would be a very useful addition to both American Studies and 'religion and film' classes, as well as classes in New Testament parables."―Robert K. Johnston, Professor of Theology and Culture, Fuller Theological Seminary


"Fantastic! This is a perfect study that brings together both Rindge's own deep expertise in New Testament studies and his agile, interdisciplinary approach to popular culture. The films Rindge has selected are perfect vehicles for his fine-tuned analysis, both in terms of the aesthetics and meaning of film, but even more compellingly, his own perspectives on American culture generally and the mythic realities of the American dream."―Gary Laderman, Goodrich C. White Professor of American Religious History and Cultures, Emory University


"My gratitude to Matthew Rindge for recognizing and brilliantly dissecting the quest for salvation that supports the surface sound and fury of my novel and David Fincher's film."―Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club


"provid[es] enlightening textual analysis throughout . . . this is a wonderful piece of work. With its simple and at the same time in-depth treatment of the subject, this study should garner a large audience. . . . Highly recommended." --Choice

"Rindge's Profane Parables is an excellent work. It will appeal greatly to scholars of American Studies, film, religion, and popular culture." --The Journal of Popular Culture
 



"would serve well as a supplementary resource within film and theology courses ... its balance between an accessible tone and an academic prowess would be best used in an undergraduate course ... a sobering and subversive book which seeks to pursue a new sort of dream." -Journal of Religion and Film

"a meaningful addition to the field of Bible and film and is highly recommended to those who want to explore the cultural and spiritual interconnections between Hollywood cinema and the Bible." -The Bible and Critical Theory
