Jesus of Hollywood by Adele Reinhartz

Book Description

Since the advent of cinema, Jesus has frequently been found in our movie houses and on our television screens. Biblical scholar Adele Reinhartz provides the first comprehensive study of the relationship of Jesus movies to the Gospels. Reinhartz focuses on the cinematic representation of Jesus, touching on such topics as Jesus' historical and cultural context, his biography, and his messianic identity. Her overarching theme is that the Jesus films both reflect and influence cultural perceptions of Jesus and the other figures in his story. Jesus films, she shows, provide a window to the profound changes in cultural attitudes, social institutions, and religious belief that Western culture has experienced in the first hundred years of film.

Bible and Cinema: Fifty Key Films by Adele Reinhartz Bible and Cinema: Fifty Key Films, Hardback (October 2012)

Movies which have drawn inspiration from the Bible, either directly or indirectly, have been extremely popular since the earliest days of cinema. 'Bible and Cinema' explores a wide range of those movies, which are among the most important, critically-acclaimed and highest-grossing films of all time.

Scripture on the Silver Screen by Adele Reinhartz Scripture on the Silver Screen, Paperback (October 2003)

This book questions the "Hollywood Hermeneutic" that too often views the Bible as a prop, but also recognizes the contributions of movies that successfully integrate the Bible as a plot-making device.
