More on Evangelicals and the Movies

Given my previous post, which shows a shift in the way evangelicals handle movies, a believer may ask how he or she should critically watch and interact with movies as well as other forms of entertainment. Joe Thorn has written a great introductory answer to this question, "Advice for Watching Movies." In this post, he gives three suggestions:

1) Don’t be Reactionary
2) Be Thoughtful
3) Be Redemptive

Thorn gives great advice, and his whole blog entry is worth reading. Another helpful evangelical voice is Brian Godawa, a Christian screenwriter. He has written a much needed book, Hollywood Worldviews: Watching Films With Wisdom & Discernment.

Let us engage our culture (and its stories as told through movies) with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
