Podcast review at Reel World Theology coming later this month and featuring yours truly!
Normally, you can find me writing and reviewing movies over at Reel World Theology. However, I got the really great opportunity to write an extended review at Reel Thinking on the movie The Overnighters.
“While it is an immensely inspiring story of a pastor and the church responding to Jesus’ call to care for those in need in their community, this ministry and the people who are ministered to are just one element of a very compelling and layered narrative. Pastor Jay Reinke’s personal story opens and closes the movie and is by far the most captivating storyline that Moss explores. An incredibly gifted and loving man, Pastor Reinke is also an incredibly flawed human, like all of us. Pastor Reinke’s story highlights the passion and the peril of Christian ministry.”

Here’s my latest review over at Reel World Theology on the movie As It Is In Heaven. It is the directorial debut of Joshua Overbay and it has been getting a lot of play among my circle of Christian cinephile compatriots. It’s a thoughtful and terrifying look at spiritual abuse and the interpersonal relationships of a Christian cult.
