Hollywood Dreams and Biblical Stories

"All of life's questions are answered in the movies."

Norman Yergen, pastor, Beltsville Seventh-day Adventist Church, Beltsville, Maryland.

"All of life's questions are answered in the movies." With this controversial quote Bernard Scott begins a conversation about listening to what speaks with authority in our culture today. He steps forward to listen to what is being said in this modern mythic medium. Having heard the underlying story, he begins to construct a bridge of interpretation between the electronic age and the themes of Scripture. Every pastor who wants to understand and communicate with the MTV generation should read this book
