    What Are People Saying about this Title?

    "Lights, Camera... Faith! is the most imaginative and engaging contemporary contribution to the art of preaching, making Hollywood a splendid resource for the pulpit. The homilies are still to be written and some of the films to be seen, but the method is now ours for the taking!"
    Walter J. Burghardt, SJ, Senior Fellow, Woodstock Theological Center, Georgetown University

    "Clearly, Peter Malone and Rose Pacatte love movies, love Jesus, and love the Church. Use this book as a guide for selecting and reflecting on your next video from Blockbuster. It is excellent!"
    Robert K. Johnston, Ph.D., Fuller Seminary, CA, Author, Reel Spirituality

    "A great service to the Church!"
    Sandra Bowden, President, Christians in the Visual Arts

    "An invaluable resource for preachers, educators, discussion leaders, and anyone who simply appreciates a fresh take on Scripture."
    Richard A. Blake, SJ, America, film reviewer, Co-director of Film Studies, Boston College

    "This book, integrating spirituality and film, is long overdue. Everyone will want it on their shelf!"
    Angela Ann Zukowski, MHSH, D.Min., Member of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications
