Just What I've Been Waiting For! Nov 26, 2002
What a wonderful resource! Finally, a book that looks at contemporary films--yes, secular films, no less--tells what the story is about, ties them to the common lectionary, and offers some insightful questions to use with discussion groups. The best part is that it doesn't use all those awful "Christian" movies--you know, the kind where no one cusses, kisses, copulates or cogitates outside of certain predefined parameters. I'm using this for a monthly film festival at my church, and the people are far more happy than when they only got to see the films full of religiosity, piety and platitudes. I'm looking forward to getting the full series A, B & C.
Excellent Tool for Young Adults Oct 29, 2001
This is a specialized book, a LECTIONARY. It is geared to the readings of the the common lectionary and uses a current feature film to bring out the message. The first three films are The Beach, The Apostle, Jesus' Son, so we see it is not a prayer book. It mines the theme, outlines the values and the ambiguity in human relationship and circumstances. Young adults go the the movies. People in the the Chuch must start where people are. This is a place to start.
