Book Description:

In the beginning, Hollywood turned to the Bible for inspiration, with Cecil B. DeMille's silent blockbusters enthralling audiences in the 1920s. Each era since has seen its signature spiritual-themed films—the reassuring Going My Way, the widescreen Ten CommandmentS and Ben Hur, the diabolical Rosemary's Baby, the satiric Life of Brian, the romantic Ghost and the intense Passion of the Christ.

About the Author:
