Item Description...
Joan of Arcadia, MIssion Impossible, Batman Forever,and That 70s Show have been some of the biggest productions in film and television. But did you know that Christians have been behind the scenes of these and other box office and ratings smashes? Industry professionals Spencer Lewerenz and Barbara Nicolois have discovered that the church is very much alive in Hollywood-and making a difference. Here's a fascinating look at Hollywood through the eyes of Christian writers, producers, and executives living out their faith on movie sets, in studio offices, and at TV networks. In their own words, they will take you behind the screen to reveal what Hollywood thinks of God and what you can do to close the gap between Christianity and culture.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
God and the Movies  Feb 17, 2007
This a must-read for any Christian who is thinking of writing for the screen or TV. Each essay is a "gem of insight" both into the art and thematic substance of movie-making, especially when Christianity is concerned.

In addition to witty and thought-provoking arguments, none of the writers take a "high and mighty" posture. In fact, you don't have to "read between the lines" to find actual humililty - from successful directors, producers and writers yet! - as well as fine-tuned critical thinking.

If you're not Christian but still interested in writing for the screen, then you might want to better understand the tensions that exist between Hollywood and so much of the American Church. This book will provide many worthy angles. It's well worth your time.
Best Advice for Christians on Hollywood  Dec 3, 2006
For decades devout Christians have hunkered in their religious bunkers trying to hold off the "world" -- and occasionally tossing a flaming sanctimonious protest out of their hole, hoping to change the world so it would be "safe" for their kind. If only, while they were down there, they would read the Gospels and discover that their hero (Christ) was rarely more than an arm's reach from the kind of people Christians try to separate themselves from... and telling stories in the process. For 30 years I've encouraged Christians to "Pray for the Christians attempting to influence our society with Biblical values and ideas through their vocations in Television, Film, Art, Entertainment, Literature, Journalism, Education, Academe, Professional Sports and Politics. God has called these individuals and gifted them like Bezalel (Exodus 31, 35, 36) to be Salt and Light to our culture." And if you're so led, "Consider a career as a cultural influencer. As a Christian you can light some candles in the darkness of our society. Prepare for a career in secular media or entertainment. Then, as you excel and gain recognition, use your influence to impart Biblical Christian values to the world." I know many of the writers in this volume, and I continue to pray for them. They are doing what the rest of us should be doing en masse.
Critique on Behind the Screen: Hollywood Insiders on Faith, Film, And Culture  Jul 10, 2006
This is excellent resource material for those discerning a vocation within the Hollywood entertainment industry. This book affords a clear perspective into the myths and realites of living out one's faith while working in Hollywood.
Insightful and Inspiring  Jul 8, 2006
The essays contained in "Behind the Screen" look at the Christian's place in Hollywood. Where should we be and how can we get there? Why are Christians ignored or misunderstood by so many decision makers in Hollywood?

This book offers intelligent, creative responses to these questions from a variety of viewpoints proving that Christians aren't a monolithic blob, but rather thinking people who want to entertain and be entertained.
Behind the Screen reveals the real Wizard  May 15, 2006
Behind the Screen is full of anecdotes and wisdom from people I've heard of and people I haven't, but all of them have a Christ-centric worldview and a desire to excel at their craft.
Most essays were sharp and gripping, especially for non-fiction (to a fiction-loving, motion picture guy.) Having read quite a few of the "Christians-in-Hollywood" books, BTS provides the most chewable nuggets and real-world applications, even for those of us who will never be Hollywood-bound.
