About this Book:
A fresh take on the Ten Commandments-through the lens of popular movies!
Enliven your study of the Christian faith by discovering movies as a moral laboratory.
In this volume of Lights, Camera … Faith!, Rose Pacatte, FSP, and Peter Malone, MSC, offer an exciting approach to adult faith formation by creating a dialogue between Scripture, the Ten Commandments, and film. By exploring the drama of the moral life through movies, Lights, Camera … Faith! The Ten Commandments grapples with the reality of temptation, choices, motivation, consequences, and the faith-filled and informed Christian response to life's situations. Three movies are offered for each commandment, providing material for different viewers: a film appropriate for a general adult audience, a film with themes calling for more in-depth discussion, and a film that treats more difficult issues.
With fresh insight into God's covenant of love, this is a valuable resource for catechetical leaders, adult faith-formation programs, parish discussion groups, young adult groups, film educators and professionals-and anyone who appreciates deeper meaning in movies.
