This engaging book explores how Christians can most profitably and critically hear, read, and view popular culture through the lens of film. William Romanowski highlights the benefits of a faith-informed approach to cinema that centers on art and perspective and shows how Christian faith contributes to the moviegoing experience, leading to a deeper understanding of movies and life. The book draws examples from classic and contemporary American movies and includes illustrative film stills. Additional resources for professors and students are available through Baker Academic's Textbook eSources.From the Back Cover"An ideal 'way in' to thinking about film for virtually any Christian reader""Romanowski has written another accessible, probing, and stimulating book which engages one of the fastest-growing fields of theological reflection today. Throwing into relief the ways in which movies convey meaning and articulate 'life perspectives, ' the book will make an ideal 'way in' to thinking about film for virtually any Christian reader."--Jeremy Begbie, Duke University"Cinematic Faith is engaging, persuasive, and novel: a handy guide for Christians looking to navigate the complexities of the film industry and the culture from which it comes."--Terry Wandtke, Judson University; founder of the Imago Film Festival"This rich and lucid book sheds fresh light on a wide range of American films. By interacting creatively with many cinematic gems, Romanowski helps to reveal the layers of meaning in both classic and recent movies. Full of thoughtful and nuanced interpretations,Cinematic Faith provides a catalyst for empowering engagement, robust reflection, and dynamic discussion about film."--Jolyon Mitchell, Centre for Theology and Public Issues, University of Edinburgh"In this highly engaging book, Romanowski demonstrates the importance of informed movie watching. Without ever losing the sense of the sheer joy of film viewing, he shows how films are significant and explores how they work. In so doing he reminds us that stories shape us and that Christian stories and Christian thinking interweave with the many stories which make up Western culture."--Clive Marsh, University of Leicester"Cinematic Faith is the book I didn't know my college-level film students needed. Romanowski effectively blends cultural insight, critical evaluation, and honest analysis to make this book a fantastic, faith-based follow-up toEyes Wide Open: Looking for God in Popular Culture."--Kimberly M. Miller, Grove City CollegeAbout the AuthorWilliam D. Romanowski (PhD, Bowling Green State University) is Arthur H. DeKruyter Chair in Communication at Calvin University and speaks frequently on subjects dealing with American culture and the entertainment industry. He is the widely respected author of a number of books, including the award-winningReforming Hollywood andEyes Wide Open.
