Peter E. Dans, M.D.
His latest book is Christians in the Movies: a Century of Saints and Sinners.
Christians in the Movies[: Boil the Water and Just Say Ah] traces the arc of the portrayal in film of
Christians from 1905 to the present. For most of the first six decades,
the portrayals were favorable and even reverential. By contrast, from
1970 on, Christians have often been treated with hostility and often
outright ridicule. This book explores this shift through in-depth
reviews and commentaries on 100 important films, as well as briefer
discussions of about 75 additional Christian-themed films.
