Over the last few years a number of good books on theology and film have been published. I love films and I enjoy trying to interpet and understand them beyond mere entertainment. The books below are all serious attempts to bring theology and film into conversation and understand how theology can interpret film.
___ Explorations in Theology and Film (eds. Clive Marsh and Gaye Oritz, 1997, Blackwell)
___ Reel Spirituality: Theology and Film in Dialogue (Robert K. Johnston, 2000, Baker)
___ Alien Sex: The Body and Desire in Cinema and Theology (Gerard Loughlin, 2004, Blackwell)
___ Cinema and Sentiment: Film's Challenge to Theology (Clive Marsh, 2004, Paternoster)
___ Cinema Divinite: Religion, Theology and the Bible in Film (eds. Eric Christianson & et al, 2005, SCM)
___ Flickering Images: Theology and Film in Dialogue (eds. Anthony Clarke and Paul Fiddes, 2005, Smyth & Helwys)
