The four volumes of 'Film and Religion' will present a range of scholarly articles, mainly since 1990, which offer a critical overview of the interdisciplinary field from a number of perspectives. It is an international collection that includes attention to popular Hollywood and 'arthouse' films and filmmakers, as well as documentaries, Bollywood, Nollywood, and other international pockets of film production and reception. Readings are primarily from scholars of religious studies, theology, and biblical studies, but the collection will also include work by film studies scholars and filmmakers themselves. The selections will indicate how cinema reflects religious and theological interests of filmmakers and the cultures within which they operate. Moreover, it will show how films impact those same cultures, including religious beliefs and practices. The relationship is not one-way, but entails multiple directions of influence.
