Theology in Film // Why Theology in Film Matters
Air Date March 12, 2014
Hour 1 - Theology in Film
The film Son of God depicts the life of
Jesus, from birth, to death, to resurrection and ascension. Some say
it’s a great tool to use with friends and family and a moving
experience. Others say it misses the mark theologically. Two professors
from Moody Bible Institute, Dr. Bryan Litfin and Brian Kammerzelt, give their perspectives and we take
your calls and response.
Hour 2- Why Theology in Film Matters
Chris continues our discussion about theology in the Son of God film and shares his theory about why this issue is so important to so many.
