Holy-wood: the film industry’s new passion for Christ

The title of this first post is taken from an article I came across recently in the Guardian.

Over the next few years a series of biblically based films will be released in Hollywood. The first of these is anticipated to be Noah (Starring Russell Crowe).

The Passion of the Christ certainly showed the power that these adaptations can have and I hope that these newly commissioned films will continue in that trend. The Passion was watched by many across the spectrum of faith and sparked many a conversation and occasionally heated debate.

I am convinced however that it doesn’t take a film based on a biblical story to  highlight something that is useful on a spiritual or faith level.

I hope that this blog can highlight these elements through the films I watch and hopefully encourage you to look at what you are watching in a different way.
