Divine Film Comedies : Biblical Narratives, Film Sub-Genres, and the Comic Spirit Paperback
by Terry (Virginia Wesleyan College, USA) Lindvall, J. Dennis (Virginia Wesleyan College, USA) Bounds, Chris (Disney) Lindvall
Part of the Routledge Studies in Religion and Film series
Divine Film Comedies creates a meaningful dialogue between stories in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament and comedies spanning the history of film.
The text lies at the intersection of three disciplines: humor/comedy studies, film studies, and theology.
Drawing on films from the silent era to the 21st century, the book highlights parallels between comedic sub-genres and sacred narratives, parables, and proverbs, illuminating a path to seeing and understanding both Scripture and film through a comic lens.
The book will be of interest to students and scholars of theology and film, media, and communications.
