Editorial Reviews


A highly original and extremely practical resource for the Church, especially for film lovers. It will take you deep it into the Christian faith. Buy it and use it! -- Jeremy Begbie, Duke Divinity School, North Carolina.

Lent is an opportunity to engage with questions of God and what it means to be human at a deeper level. This book provides an imaginative and stimulating way in, both for individual and group study. For some it will be surprising, for some it will be challenging, but the stories represented in movies can lead us deeper into discovering who we are in the light of a God who loves and redeems. I commend this book to you. -- Revd Professor David Wilkinson, St John's College, Durham University.

Thoughts of God is a first-rate group Lenten study putting Scripture into meaningful and delightful conversation with the film, The Man Who Knew Infinity (2015). Theology is at its core the conversation between God's story and our stories. That is, as we experience, what the best of sermons do each week. To deepen that conversation, Colebrooke has brought together relevant scriptural texts with the real-life story of the Hindu mathematician Ramanujan's interaction with the Cambridge don and atheist G. H. Hardy. As the film invites viewers to empathize with the humanity of this young Indian family, it encourages us to extend our theological probings concerning our own humanity. Here is the dialogue between Bible and film at its best. Highly recommended. -- Robert K. Johnston, Fuller Theological Seminary, and author of Reel Spirituality (2006), God's Wider Presence (2014), and God in the Movies (2017), with Catherine Barsotti).

This Lent course is refreshingly original and yet highly relevant and contemporary to many of the issues facing society and the Christian church today. I knew nothing of Srinivasa Ramanujan until I was sent this book, but his life and work, wonderfully portrayed in the film, has been beautifully woven into the five sessions that make for a truly engaging course. The complexity of the mathematics doesn't interfere with understanding an exciting and intriguing story, that will encourage some lively and fruitful conversations, and I will be recommending it to parishes in my patch. -- The Venerable Robin King, Archdeacon of Stansted.

If you are looking for a Lent Course which explores discipleship and the interface between religious faith and the scientific endeavour in a fresh and creative way, 
Thoughts of God is for you. Anchored in a friendship which featured in a 2015 movie, The Man Who Knew Infinity, this new course illuminates philosophical and theological truths and tensions in a way which speaks to both head and heart and is anchored in everyday human realities. -- The Rt Revd Dr Lee Rayfield, Society of Ordained Scientists, Bishop of Swindon.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I am a retired Anglican priest with nearly 30 years ministerial experience. Throughout I have led and devised many Lent and other short courses, with a special fondness for those that involve the use of film.

My background is in science, studying for a degree in Physics before doing postgraduate research in Polymer Physics, both at Imperial College in London. Prior to ordination I taught Reactor Physics at Queen Mary College, London, followed by more than a decade teaching mathematics in secondary schools. My conviction is that science and faith need not be enemies, but rather, together they can provide a rich harmony of understanding. My booklet ‘Science and Religion’ explores this conviction through considering the spirituality of the Victorian physicist James Clerk Maxwell, sometimes dubbed ‘The Scottish Einstein’.

I now live in Essex with my wife Hazel; we delight in having three grown-up children and seven amazing grandchildren.
