Death to cheesy Christian movies

“The death of cheesy Christian movies” writes Greg Stier of Christianpost.com about new teen movie To Save A Life which has just opened in the US.

That’s got to be good news… Check out the official website and watch for release dates in Australia.

Contemporary Christian communicators, by and large, often try so hard to get their message articulated in triplicate that they lose all sense of storytelling. This applies equally to movies and novels, with some exceptions.

Apparently To Save A Life bucks this trend which can only be a good thing. Remember how good a storyteller Jesus was, and often he didn’t even bother to explain a parable because he knows we are wired to ponder and explore narrative. A truth we find for ourselves is doubly found. PH
