Reel Issues - Free access


I have an interest in how films can be read as a text through a theological lens. In saying this, I am not stating that every film has a theological or even spiritual intent behind it. However, if reflecting on the world around us discloses something of the Creator and the creative power that is at large in the world. It also helps to reflect on humanity and the human condition and if we are made in the image of God, that too can show something of Him. End of sermon.

As part of this, from time-to-time I write studies of films for the Bible Society. The studies were available on a subscription only basis - but now there is free access. The Reel Issues website contains a number of studies spanning a wide range of films. Check them out.

The ones I've written are:
  • 16 Blocks
  • Henry Poole is here
  • Julie & Julia
  • No Country for Old Men
  • The Simpsons Movie
  • V for Vendetta
Do take a look.
