The course requirements for "Theology and Cinema" included two reflection papers on the relationship between theological motifs and one or more movies, as well as a detailed proposal for an individual lecture or complete course linking the studies of faith and film in some fashion. My proposal, entitled "The Quest of the Historical Jesus in Scholarship and Cinema," served as the basis for the four-week seminar which I'm facilitating at my home church, Christ Church United Methodist, each of the remaining Wednesday evenings in July. If you're in town, I hope to see you there!
