Engaging podcast on faith and movies
Really well done podcast delving deep into theological themes in movies and then tying them to lectionary texts. Hearlson and Gaventa come with theological and film criticism lenses that expand my understanding both of the movies and the texts. Highly recommend.
Church & Film. Theater & Story.
Church & Film. Theater & Story. So many threads in common. All pointing to human experience & God' gift of Word. Thank you. Preachers need Preachers.
I’m not really into movies or preaching, but I love this podcast with all my heart.
