Scripts for Life


The narratives we encounter in films express a vision for life, sometimes explicitly and sometimes in more subtle ways. These stories grab our imagination and shape the ways in which we think, live, and search for hope. But Christians need to see themselves as part of God’s story, not the stories that we pick up from films. In this session, we will focus on helpful ways to watch and understand films as Christians, and how we can relate to their stories in different ways in our families, youth groups, Bible study groups, in preaching and other contexts. Throughout the session, we will give examples from our book, Focus: Film, on how to use film on the church arena.
