Summary
"A unique, exhaustively researched viewers guide to movies about Jesus that takes readers film-by-film from Olcott s silent classic From the Manger to the Cross (1912) through Dornford- May's Son of Man (2006). Drawing on his experience as a biblical scholar and teacher on religion and film, Barnes Tatum looks at Jesus films in all their dimensions: as cinematic art, literature, biblical history, and theology. A fascinating analysis of all the Jesus movies that have been made since the beginning of cinematography."--Publisher's description
