Drawing a comparison between religion and cinema-going, this text examines a range of contemporary films in relation to key theological concepts. Cinema as a religion-like activity is explored through cognitive, affective, aesthetic and ethical levels, identifying the religious aspects in the social practice of cinema-going.

Written by a leading expert in the field, Theology Goes to the Movies analyzes:

  • the role of cinema and Church in Western culture
  • the power of Christian symbols and images within popular culture
  • theological concepts of humanity, evil and redemption, eschatology and God.

This is an ideal text for students seeking a new way into the study of theology.
