Studies of religion and film have long been dominated by the question of a film's fidelity to a religious text or worldview, or its value as a tool in ministry and mission. Adopting a cultural studies approach, Religion and Film seeks to redress this balance and provide a fuller understanding of the giving and taking of (religious) meanings in the cinema. The book offers both a sustained methodological argument and detailed analyses of specific films such as La Passion de Jeanne D'Arc, Lagaan, My Son the Fanatic, The Wicker Man and The Passion of The Christ.
