These essays are invitations to consider, to differ, and to converse. Bible Editions & Versions, 6.1, January-March 2005 Screening Scripture provides a provocative viewing of how contemporary culture can re-awaken and re-interpret ancient scripture. From Arnold Schwarzenegger to S. Paul; Midnight Cowboy to the book of Ruth; Sling Blade to Jesus, this series of essays instigates an examination of the relationship between culture and religion. Screening Scripture boldly challenges the reader to view scripture through the interpretive lens of individual authors and of contemporary films. Conrad Ostwalt, Professor of Religion and co-editor of Screening the Sacred--Conrad Ostwalt This colorful collection contains some of the smartest writing on Bible and film that I have seen. Two thumbs up! Stephen D. Moore, author of God's Gym and God's Beauty Parlor--Stephen D. Moore The lively essays comprising Screening Scripture claim that certain films quote or translate the Christian scriptures in a different medium, interpreting and presenting biblical insights in vivid images. The essays use contemporary film, cultural criticism, and psychoanalytic theory to exhibit the profound, subtle, and skillful way the films discussed reference scripture. The book represents the next stage of sophisticated studies of religion and film. Margaret R. Miles, author of Seeing and Believing: Religion and Values in the Movies--Margaret R. Miles "This colorful collection contains some of the smartest writing on Bible and film that I have seen. Two Thumbs up!"--Sanford Lakoff "The book represents the next stage of sophisticated studies of religion and film."--Sanford Lakoff "Boldly challenges the reader to view scripture through the interpretive lens of individual authors and of contemporary films."--Sanford Lakoff "The diverse and rich selection of texts ranges from Genesis to Revelation, and David and Bathsheba to End of Days." John R. May--Sanford Lakoff "I found this book so valuable that I will be attempting to build a class around it..Screening Scripture is valuable because it serves to link traditional Western religion with contemporary symbols and concerns." Catlyn Keenan, Department of Social Sciences, Philosophy and Religion, Front Range Community College.--Sanford Lakoff "[T]his is not merely a sophisticated critique [E]ach of the thirteen authors seeks to bring films and biblical texts into dialogue in order to see if light might be thrown on both conversation partners This is a fascinating contribution to the study of religion as well as hermeneutics." Diane Bergant C.S.A., The Bible Today, July/August 2003--Sanford Lakoff
