Salvation in Celluloid
Full Product Description
Once the theological (paradigmatic) imagination has been identified and justified, its insights will be applied to Jesus films and Christ figure films asking whether or not they provide us with valid Christological understanding. Films with redemptive or salvific themes are discussed as is the popularity of mythical stories and animation. The final chapter will make the case that the engagement of the theological imagination with film is a method in practical theology.

Dr Robert Pope is Senior Lecturer in Applied Theology at the University of Wales, Bangor and a minister of the United Reformed Church.
This important book is required reading for all concerned with theology and film. Dr. Pope provides a sophisticated and compelling account of the theological imagination as it bears upon, and is stimulated by, film; and careful analyses of such key terms as 'reality', 'fantasy', and 'escapism'. Religious insight, theological substance, cultural awareness and philosophical acumen are here blended to an unusual degree. I warmly congratulate Robert Pope on a fine piece of work.
