On the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month Divine Cinema looks at films with central themes of faith from a Progressive Christian perspective. The Divine Cinema team will put the good, the bad and the ugly films about faith through the eye of a needle and scrutinize its themes, messages, cinematography and overall portrayal faith on the silver screen. As self-proclaimed experts of fine (and divine) cinema and former Evangelicals, hosts Jeff, Adam and Dylan have a lot to say about movies, their distorted views of Christianity, and the messages of the pop culture we consume. So if you are looking for podcast that appreciates the art of film and how it can beautifully (or horribly) reflect the nuanced ways in which people express their faith, this is the podcast for you.
