Reviews

The return of the `Bible epic' to our screens ... coincides with recent scholarly interest in the Bible in Film ... and this absorbing volume by a group of UK- and Ireland-based scholars addresses some of the issues raised by the phenomenon. * Journal for the Study of the Old Testament * A very readable and even collection of essays that well-demonstrate the present quality of conversation in the bible and film, with suggestions of where to further that conversation in a profitable dialog with other fields in the humanities. * Reading Religion *
