Item description for Screening Scripture: Intertexual Connections Between Scripture and Film by George Aichele & Richard Walsh...

This unique book opens up new ways to see movies in their relationship to sacred texts-not just the Bible, but apocryphal, heretical, and non-western scriptures as well. The writers serve as creative viewers, making original connections between the texts and some of today's most popular and provocative films, which include: Pleasantville, Total Recall, The Prince of Egypt, Dracular, Patch Adams and many others.

Publishers Description
Screening Scripture offers a unique new perspective on religion and film. The book proposes that there is no natural connection between scripture and film even for those movies that seem to have an obvious relationship to religious text. It is only the viewer that makes this connection. From this perspective, Screening Scripture opens up new possibilities for viewing these movies and reading these texts with each other. The contributors to this volume serve as creative viewers who make these connections for some of today s most popular and provocative films. The scriptures discussed include not only the Bible, but apocryphal, heretical, and non-Western scriptures. In the hands of these writers, the films provide fresh insights into the scriptures.
