The faith-based film industry is booming! But it comes at a cost: faith-based films are a MARKETABLE representation of Christianity, not necessarily a BIBLICAL one. Created by secular corporations and marketing demographics, such movies often reduce Christianity to fit corporate concerns. But what if, instead of watching Christian movies, we learned to see Christian themes and values in all movies? In this book, you’ll learn how movies can awaken our moral imaginations to Christian themes that still pervade our films. And you’ll discover how our children can encounter depictions of truth that lead to a life of wisdom and virtue. Here Is A Preview Of What You'll Learn ....
  • How to watch a movie and discern its meaning
  • How to identify Christian themes in films
  • What is the moral imagination and how it leads to virtue formation
  • How to teach your children to watch movies and cultivate wisdom
  • And much, much, more!
