Film's challenge to Theology.

Synopsis:

Watching any film happens within a cultural context. Cinema and Sentiment critically examines the practice of watching movies in western culture. Clive Marsh demonstrates aspects of the religious function of film-watching by comparing watching movies to worshiping. Through a variety of case studies on the habit of going to the theater, Marsh's study shows how watching films as a regular practice can contribute to the shaping of human living.Engaging with social and religious behavior patters in western culture, Cinema and Sentiment suggests a need to recover a positive sense of sentiment, both in theology and film. Two concluding chapters locate the text in recent studies of theology and film, offering church leaders, students of theology and film studies, and all those with an interest in contemporary culture practical consequences of the work's findings.
