Finding St. Paul in Film

Full Product Description

Unlike Jesus, Paul has not appeared often in the movies, either as a leading man or as a part of the supporting cast.

"In Finding Saint Paul in the Movies", Walsh finds a Paul who is a stranger to our questions and ideologies. As Paul does not appear often in film, the films that the book brings into dialogue with Paul have only metaphorical connections with the Paul of Christian and academic discourse.

The films relate to Paul only as Walsh's interpretations of the films and of Paul render Paul the films' precursor.

Walsh's book works more abstractly. It has four major topics distributed in an equal number of chapters: Paul's concept of grace (the inclusion of the Gentiles); Paul's apocalyptic visions and worldview; Paul's struggles with theodicy and community formation; and Paul's "apostolic" or "canonical" status.

He examines movies such as "Tender Mercies", "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan", "Places in the Heart", "Donnie Darko", "Witness", "The Truman Show", "Strange Days", "Being John Malkovich", "Fargo", "Crimes and Misdemeanours", and "The Apostle".

Finding St. Paul in Film by Richard Walsh was published by Continuum in December 2005. The ISBN for Finding St. Paul in Film is 9780567028501.
