Part of the Christianity and Renewal - Interdisciplinary Studies book series (CHARIS)


In an aesthetics of renewal, film can be understood as a re-enchanting art form that has the ability to transform the hearts and minds of people by telling stories in multisensory ways. This chapter discusses the various ways that films frame the world and present new realities to us. Movies have the ability to powerfully engage religious ideas and evoke spiritual yearnings in us. When film is properly utilized, it can become a powerful medium for building a re-enchanted, Spirit-filled community.
