31 years late: Some thoughts on Chariots of Fire


I’ve written a two-part reflection on the 1981 film Chariots of Fire, which is appearing at Good Letters, the blog hosted by IMAGE.

It’s not really a film review. It’s more of a personal consideration of the film: what I remember of its reception among Christian moviegoers, what I loved about the movie when I was a kid, how it changed my life in college, what it’s saying to me now.

If you want to read a more straightforward film review, here’s one from Steven Greydanus.
