Christians’ Unbiblical Approach to “Biblical” Movies

Over at Christ & Pop Culture, E. Stephen Burnett has some good reminders for Christians as we anticipate the release of Exodus: Gods and Kings:

I can still recall when evangelicals feared that The Prince of Egypt would show the liberal mainline theologians’ perversion of the scene: a ragtag band of slaves slopping through a decidedly non-miraculously-parted “sea of reeds.” Now there is no chance of films forsaking the opportunity to show epic million-dollar-visual-effected miracles. For that I rejoice. Even in movies that change the story – Exodus: Gods and Kings and The Ten Commandments alike –manmade “miracles” can remind us of the only Director Who alone makes His stories reality.
