Product description

Exploring the interface between the Bible and film offers exciting opportunities for both biblical scholars and moviegoers alike. The eleven contributors to this provocative and wide-ranging collection deal critically and creatively both with films about the Bible and biblical characters, including the recent controversial The Passion of the Christ, and with a wide range of contemporary films in which biblical themes play a significant, and sometimes surprising, role. Originally published as issue 1-2 of Volume 14 (2006) of Brill's journal Biblical Interpretation.

Review quote

'... the reader is richly rewarded by reading and re-reading these essays. [..] Hopefully these essays will encourage readers to initiate their own conversations between bibles and film.' Michael Carden, The Bible and Critical Theory, 2007.
