Overview

Screening Scripture offers a unique new perspective on religion and film. The book proposes that there is no natural connection between scripture and film-even for those movies that seem to have an obvious relationship to religious text. It is only the viewer that makes this connection. From this perspective, Screening Scripture opens up new possibilities for viewing these movies and reading these texts with each other.

The contributors to this volume serve as creative viewers who make these connections for some of today's most popular and provocative films. The scriptures discussed include not only the Bible, but apocryphal, heretical, and non-Western scriptures. In the hands of these writers, the films provide fresh insights into the scriptures. Contributors to this volume:

George Aichele (Adrian College) on Pleasantville
Roland Boer (Monash University) on Total Recall
Ralph Brabban (Chowan College) on Midnight Cowboy
Fred Burnett (Anderson University) on Lethal Weapon

Julie Kelso (University of Queensland) on David and Bathsheba
Neal McCrillis (Columbus State University) on The Giant Behemoth
Tina Pippin (Agnes Scott College) on Dracula
Jennifer Rohrer-Walsh (Methodist College) on The Prince of Egypt
Mark Roncace (Emory University) on Sling Blade
Erin Runions (Barnard College) on Boys Don't Cry
Jeffrey Staley (Seattle University) on Patch Adams
Richard Walsh (Methodist College) on End of Days
