really liked it

"All the world's a screen" – at least that's how Prof Horner sees it, and I'm starting to agree with him.

Prof Horner's work here revels both his love for film and for God's Word and how to balance the two. As an English professor, film guru, and a student of theology, Prof Horner is the right man to speak to this very important Christian question of what do we do with film?

This book will challenge any film lover, parent, student, and Christian to actually use discernment when watching movies, and not just view them for entertainment only. His purpose is not to tell you what movies to watch, but show you how to watch them. Additionally, his goal is teach us how to see ourselves in movies, and then compare that with how God designed us to live as revealed in the Bible.

For Christians, Meaning At The Movies should be added to your "to-read" list and pushed to the top of the list. It will create a conversation in your home, work, or church that will surely help us all use our time to the glory of God, even when we're holding a bag of popcorn and enjoying a movie together.
