Should Christians Give Christian Movies Rave Reviews?

If you’ve been reading this blog recently, you know that Christian film critics sometimes get blasted for pointing out weaknesses in Christian films.

I thought I’d ask the thoughtful, eloquent crowd of Christians over at ArtsandFaith.com what they think about this question:

How should a Christian film critic review a Christian movie?

The discussion currently unfolding is full of great, thought-provoking replies.

Instead of commenting here, I encourage you to share your perspective there. (Registration required.)
