Another one you might want to try is Screen Christologies: Redemption and the Medium of Film, (Christopher Deacy, 2001, University of Wales Press).


Another one definitely worth mentioning is Useless Beauty: Ecclesiastes Through the Lens of Contemporary Film, also by Robert Johnston, Baker Academic, 2004. There, he develops further the genre of theological consideration of film by focusing on the book of Ecclesiastes, creating (almost) a commentary on the book through the medium of film criticism. A good read, I think, and it helped me to think through and better appreciate both Ecclesiastes and a number of films.

This is a good list of books, I agree about Screen Christologies, that's a good one. Robert Johnston has also written a book called Reel Spirituality. It's a general introduction on theology and film which gives a good overview of the field.
