068 – Jesus Loves Movies (With Phil Strangolagalli)

Church and media, two groups of people that don’t always see eye to eye. Yet despite the fact that we don’t always discuss our watching habits while sitting in the pews, we all enjoy (or should enjoy) a good movie. But what if Jesus was less concerned about a movies rating and more concerned about the lessons movies can teach us? This week, we are talking with Phil Strangolagalli, author of “Jesus Loves Movies”. We talk about what lead Phil to realizing God can use media to speak to us, some of his favorite movies and their messages, and even a bit about how Jesus isn’t as uptight as we make him out to be. If you have ever found yourself receiving profound, life changing inspiration from a movie; so much so that it just had to be from God than Phil is your guy. Heck, he wrote the book on it!

mov·ie: /ˈmo͞ovēt/ – a story or event recorded by a camera as a set of moving images and shown in a theater or on television; a motion picture.
