Cinema Sophia

Media is a window into the hearts and minds of people in their culture. Movies are evidence of what people are struggling with, what they are wishing or hoping for, and always have parallels in the Bible. “Cinema Sophia” is the name of Prof. Eschelbach’s ongoing project of watching movies with students and discussing the importance of them. Here are study questions (and often study questions with answers) based on those viewings/discussions. You may use them if you would find them helpful to yourself or your ministry. If you download them for use, please reference where you obtained them, Prof. Eschelbach as the author, and consider making a donation to Word Without Walls for the help the movie study provides.
