This book follows in the path blazed by Jewett's St. Paul at the Movies. It questions the "Hollywood Hermeneutic" that too often views the Bible as prop, but also recognizes the contributions of movies that successfully integrate the Bible as a plot-making device. Includes short chapters on the Bible's role in such movies as The Truman Show, Pleasantville, The Sixth Sense, Magnolia, Pulp Fiction, The Miracle-Maker, Prince of Egypt, The Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption, Breaking the Waves, Pretty Woman, The Apostle, Blue, The Matrix, and Deep Impact.

Eloquently written and meticulously researched,Scripture on the Silver Screenoffers all students of Scripture--whether in an academic classroom or at home--an inviting new way to further their biblical literacy. It questions the "Hollywoood Hermeneutic" that too often views the Bible as prop, but also recognizes the contributions of movies that successfully integrate the Bible as a plot-making device. Each chapter begins with a discussion on the focal Bible passage, placing it in its literary and historical context, followed by a summary of the film and its main themes.
