Publishers Description

Growing numbers of church leaders are discovering that many films are able to impact viewers with gospel truths almost as well as a good sermon. Ed McNulty, a former pastor and longtime reviewer of films, offers this guide to help church leaders enter into dialogue with contemporary films. McNulty carefully crafts a theology of movies and then provides practical suggestions for creating and leading movie discussions with groups. In addition, he provides people from all across the theological spectrum with a framework to understand whether the overall message of a film outweighs concerns over profanity, violence, or sex in the film. He concludes by introducing twenty-seven films and including provocative questions about each that will prepare leaders to assemble and facilitate a group.

Popular films explored include "The Color Purple"; "Crash"; "Hotel Rwanda"; "The Matrix"; "Million Dollar Baby"; "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" and "The Shawshank Redemption."

Guidance notes for discussion groups on contemporary films  Jun 17, 2007
Edward McNulty's love of film and his belief that churches can harness cinema's contribution to contemporary culture come across very strongly in this book. His introduction gives some of the arguments that Christians use against modern films and he explains why he disagrees with these views and considers the importance medium for the church. He discusses different types of films and the ways in which the Christian message can be seen in them. He then provides a study guide for 27 films, many of which are popular (Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, American Beauty, Shawshank Redemption, Dogma) and many of which were unknown to me. The study guides are 3-5 pages long and give points for discussion. Although a helpful book I wondered if the guides were detailed enough and the choice of films wouldn't work for every church group, however the introduction was a good read although some may not find his arguments for the validity of some 18-rated films entirely convincing.
