From magazines like Vanity Fair we learn that celebrities, the stars of stage and screen, suffer just like us. They search for love in the wrong places and right, in character and out. They know loneliness and grief, failure as well as success. And yet, as the title of one chapter in this volume suggests, "everything we need to know about grace we can learn from Audrey Hepburn." As an associate professor of theology at Fordham University, Terrance Klein often brought together the lives of the stars and the Christian life. In this collection of short pieces, drawing from sources as varied as a biography of Princess Diana and a book by Pope Benedict-as well as plenty of profiles in Vanity Fair and The New Yorker-Klein uses the stars of stage and screen to give us insight into our life with Christ. Becoming holy as we learn what it means to be human, we learn it is all about finding the way God has prepared for us.

Review:

An interesting book written from experience, reflection and prayer.The Furrow

Klein shows readers how to find spiritual meaning in what they might otherwise think of as just casual entertainment, hardly more than ‘vanities.’Review for Religious

Delightful, innovative, and always provocative, Vanity Faith reveals how God can be found in the movies and on television, and how popular culture can teach you more about your faith than you could have ever dreamed. Perfect for anyone who lives in a world of pop culture—in other words, everyone!James Martin, SJ, Author of My Life with the Saints

When religious folk talk about Hollywood, it’s usually to bash Show Biz. Fr. Terrance Klein, however, brilliantly finds a story of redemption in I Love Lucy, and echoes of Jeremiah’s laments in the breakup between Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt. If you’ve ever found yourself watching an old movie and humming the ‘Panis Angelicus’ at the same time, wondering what the one has to do with the other, this is the book for you. Klein patrols the intersection between faith and culture with great panache.John L. Allen Jr., Senior Correspondent for the National Catholic Reporter, Senior Vatican Analyst for CNN
