Reviews - What do our customers think?
Don't buy this book  Jan 30, 2009
You'd be better off buying Jesus At The Movies. Since the film I know the most about in this book is Jesus Of Nazareth, I know a lot of information about it is wrong. The book says it made little impact, but in fact it is considered a monumental film. Most people would consider it one of the best, if not the best Jesus films ever made.

If the authors got this wrong who knows what else they got wrong. It also calls the potrayal of Jesus in this film flat and undeveloped while praising the disturbed weakling potrayal of Him in The Last Temptation Of Christ. In fact it praises that film and calls says it has a respectful portrayal of Jesus. I think not.

This book is not for serious Bible study or to be used for churches or sunday schools as it claims. The men who wrote it are by no means experts on Jesus films. So do yourself a favor and don't waste your money.
 
A unique assemblage of Jesus films summarized and described  Oct 12, 2007
This book consists of twenty chapters, eighteen of which are devoted to Jesus films available on DVD, beginning chronologically with Zecca and Nonquet's 1905 "The Life and Passion of Jesus Christ" and ending with Gibson's 2004 "The Passion of the Christ."

Each chapter devoted to a film follows the same format: Plot summary, memorable characters, memorable visuals, key Scriptures, cultural location/genre, director, DVD extras and DVD chapters.

The book devotes individual chapters to four films which have not previously been the focus of independent chapters in any book: Zecca and Nonquet's 1905 "The Life and Passion of Jesus Christ," Greene's 1973 "Godspell," Young's 1999 "Jesus," Hayes's 1999 "The Miracle Maker," and Saville's 2003 "The Gospel of John."

The book also includes a thirteen-page, double-column "Gospels Harmony of Jesus Films on DVD," where one can find, for example, what four films include the "Parable of the Good Samaritan" and the precise hour/minute/second the parable can be found in each film.

The book is intended for honors-level high school seniors and college underclassmen, but teachers, pastors, and college professors will find it valuable for research, classroom and church use.
