The connection between theology and film is a hot topic in the academy and the church. But research and writing on methodology and hermeneutics is lacking. This comprehensive collection identifies the overlooked or undervalued areas in the current discussions of film and theology. Including contributions from the leaders in the field, Reframing Theology and Film helps deepen the conversation while bringing it to a new level of prominence. Professors and students of theology and film, libraries, pastors, and film buffs will benefit from this much-needed resource.

- Publisher The study of theology and film is fewer than three decades old. What, then, does the future hold for this evolving subject? In "Reframing Theology and Film," Robert Johnston has drawn together more than a dozen scholars who regularly write and teach on the topic; their contributions explore how the discipline of theology and film can flourish and mature. The book also emphasizes the overlooked and undervalued aspects of theology and film. Contributors include: Craig Detweiler Barry Taylor Gaye Williams Ortiz Sara Anson Vaux Gordon Lynch Terry Lindvall Clive Marsh Rebecca Ver Straten-McSparran Catherine M. Barsotti John Lyden Mitch Avila Christopher Deacy Rose Pacatte, FSP Gerard Loughlin Robert K. Johnston - ?Here is a fine collection of essays full of rich detail, engaging insights, and provocative suggestions. The impressive cast of authors points beyond many of the usual frames of study, offering original perspectives and new approaches. Without exception, the chapters make a valuable contribution to ongoing dynamic conversations. This is a ?'must-read - ? for anyone with an interest in film and theology. - ? - ?Jolyon Mitchell, senior lecturer, Edinburgh University; author of "Media Violence and Christian Ethics" and coeditor of "The Religion and Film Reader" - ?In this single volume, the field of theology and film has matured from infancy to adulthood. Robert Johnston has assembled a top-notch group of scholars to set the stage for emerging directions in the field. No future writing on the topic can ignore the categories reframed by the contributors here. - ? ?'S.
