9780983934509: Thus Saith Hollywood: Using Movie Dialogue to Stimulate Spiritual Thought

A compilation of essays written by Michael Elliott, film critic and biblical scholar, that expounds upon the comparison between movie quotes and Bible verses. Using Hollywood's product, Elliott shows that, as hard as they might try, filmmakers cannot remove the traces of the Almighty from their films.  If movies are an art form and art reflects life... then, by sheer logic, the Creator of life must be reflected in the end product.  Whether it is a comedy, drama, mystery, thriller, or action adventure - God's truths will always be present. We just need to look for Him.  Elliott shows us how.

From the Back Cover:

For over ten years, Michael Elliott's Movie Parables added a spiritual perspective to film reviews while bringing a worldwide attention and praise to his website, ChristianCritic.com. Now, for the first time in traditional print media, Elliott revisits a popular feature of his website. Through the comparison of familiar movie quotes and timeless Bible verses, Elliott shows just how often Hollywood's screenwriters "borrow" from the Creator of life. Because God's truths are woven into the very fabric of life, any stories that deal with life or the human condition must, by definition, reflect God's original handiwork. This could arguably make God Hollywood's most prolific, uncredited screenwriter.

About the Author:

Being both a student and a teacher of the Bible, as well as being both a professional actor and director, Michael Elliott sought to combine his two passions into a single outlet. In 1998, he launched ChristianCritic.com, a movie review website which brought spiritual insight to a secular form of entertainment. After a ten year stint of being a leading voice for Christian film lovers, Elliott retired his website. But the passion continued on.  Thus Saith Hollywood is Elliott's first venture into the world of print media.  It will not be his last.  Michael Elliott lives in Central Florida with his wife Kate. He still enjoys studying the Bible and watching movies.
