The Religion-and-Film Genre: A Select Bibliography

The Religion-and-Film Genre: A Select Bibliography

This is the second century of the age of Hollywood and the reign of moving image culture. Black-and-white photography started it. Film got it moving, talking and coloured. Television got it out of theatres and into your home, at first small and monochrome but now big and colourful. The Internet now brings it directly into your office and straight onto your PC, tablet or mobile phone. It entertains and educates us all. Indeed, the popular cinema (aka movies, films, flicks, the pictures) has become the lingua franca of the children-of-the-media during the 20th and 21st centuries, with no hint of its demise in sight. And yet, despite this social reality, mainstream religious education has been reluctant to seriously utilise movies in the classroom, home or pulpit beyond their visual aide or student pacifier roles. The following fifteen heuristic categories (with book, book chapter, and article break-downs per category) were created for your ease, enjoyment and edification.
