-Publisher

From the unprecedented and innovative perspective of Christian theology, this book investigates how cinema audiences wrestle with religious beliefs and values. Through a reading of films as diverse as Groundhog Day, Billy Liar, Fight Club, Nobody's Fool and The Passion of Christ, Deacy reveals that the movies raise vital questions about the spiritual landscape and normative values of western society today.
