WE ARE WIRED FOR STORIES
We need them to understand who we are, where we come from, and where we’re headed. And this is why even secular movies can become the occasion of a sacred experience.
As Saint John Paul II wrote, “Even beyond its typically religious expressions, true art has a close affinity with the world of faith, so that, even in situations where culture and the Church are far apart, art remains a kind of bridge to religious experience.”
Everyone familiar with Christopher West's courses, lectures, books and blog posts knows that he is a movie enthusiast. Next to music, they’re his favorite art form.
"There is just no more powerful way to tell a story, it seems to me, than through the visual medium of a well-crafted, artfully produced film," he says.
Over the years he has written a great deal about how certain movies create this bridge. Now, for the first time, and in response to numerous requests, he has collected those writings in his FREE ebook: Theology of the Body at the Movies!
