Reviews - What do customers think about Reframing Theology and Film: New Focus for an Emerging Discipline (Cultural Exegesis)?
The Challenges of Film and studying the Theological contexts of it. Oct 11, 2008
This is a thorough and engaging look at the root areas of our thinking about film that need to be re-examined. This is necessary in order to further our cultural understanding and involvement. Johnston is always clear-cut, methodical, and dead-on with his picking away at the layers of our mindset, and helping to mold that into a more flexible AND focused Christianly way of thinking.
