How do we find Christ in films that are not directly about Jesus of Nazareth? This has been one of the recurring challenges to Peter Malone who has spent more than fifty years as a reviewer of films with a constant interest in uncovering themes, characters and plots that reveal Christ-like figures and images.
Christ-figures – there on our screens is a fascinating insight into more than thirty films that the author explores for their – generally hidden – portrayals of characteristics that reflect the life and teaching of Jesus in the Gospels.
The book is offered to help us reflect on the films and to discuss them in formal or informal groups. It will also be a rich resource for Religious Education when film becomes a way of helping students appreciate how the Gospel messages are interpreted, portrayed and lived.
