Reading Christian Ministry in Fiction, Television, and Film
By Sue Sorensen
An engaging analysis of the portrayal of members of the Christian clergy in literature, cinema and television, and how such cultural perceptions can shape popular expectations and understanding of the Christian ministry.
“Sorenson writes well: clearly and crisply. Her analysis of the literature, and film, is for the most-part even-handed; and she is not blind to a work’s weaknesses even while appreciating the portrayal of ministry offered. Her observations, both theological and literary, provide material to ponder.”
