Yes! Yes! Yes!

Christians setting sights on Hollywood


"Many Christian projects fail because they force the medium by insisting on an overly theological content. But entertainment works best when it engages in a dialogue with the viewer, rather than just being an academic lesson. Thus, rather than "delivering the Truth" Christians should imitate the trust of the sower who casts seeds on the ground and moves on. "

"Why is it that heathens tend to make the best Christian films? This is the question put by Thom Parham in his essay. According to Parham, scriptwriter and associate professor at Azusa Pacific University, many of the better films with Christian messages, with a few notable exceptions, have been made by non-religious people. "

(An interesting answer to that one)
