Christians in the Movies traces the arc of the portrayal in film of Christians from 1905 to the present. For most of the first six decades the portrayals were favorable and even reverential. By contrast from 1970 on Christians-and especially Catholics-have often been treated with hostility and sometimes outright ridicule. This book explores the shift through in-depth reviews and commentaries on over 100 important films as well as briefer discussions of 75 additional films with Christian themes or characters.
