Abstract

The aim of this article is to examine the manner and extent to which the medium of film is capable of comprising a potential site of theological engagement. It takes as its starting point David Jasper's critique of escapism, as outlined in a 1997 chapter, and concludes that film and theology may be brought together as discerning, and reciprocal, dialogue-partners.
