Description - Bible and Film: The Basics by Matthew S. Rindge

Bible and Film: The Basics is a concise, accessible, and illuminating introduction to the study of Bible and Film. The book introduces non-specialists to the essential content in Bible and Film, and to some of the most common and important methods Bible and Film scholars use. Questions asked throughout the book include:

  • How do films (re)interpret and illuminate biblical texts?
  • How do films appropriate, reconfigure, and transform biblical texts?
  • How does a film's treatment of biblical texts help interpret and illuminate the film?

This book examines various types of interplay between film and the Bible. The theme of 'Bible on film' is explored through Hebrew Bible epics including The Prince of Egypt and Noah, and Jesus films such as The Last Temptation of Christ and Son of Man. The theme 'Bible in film' is analyzed through films including Mary Magdalene, Magnolia, Pulp Fiction, and The Book of Eli. Films that 'reimagine the Bible' include Ex Machina, mother!, and The Tree of Life; unusual Jesus figures in Pan's Labyrinth, Dogville, and Donnie Darko are also explored. 'Film as Bible' considers films such as To the Wonder, Silence, and Parasite. A conclusion examines television shows such as Dekalog, The West Wing, The Handmaid's Tale, and God on Trial.

With a glossary of key terms and suggestions for further reading throughout, this book is an ideal starting point for anyone seeking a full introduction to religion and film, bible and film, bible and popular culture, and theology and film.
