There were three filmmakers who created a brilliant, dark, complex, funny, inspiring, moving, nuanced, difficult, lengthy, insightful film. Many people saw it and discussed it and there were as many different thoughts and opinions about it as there were images in the movie. Some people’s lives were altered as a result. Some people were annoyed by it. There were many theories about how the film had come to be. Some said it just happened, others claimed it came from outer space. Some put it aside and forgot about it, others never knew it even existed. But some went looking for the trio of filmmakers, and were found by them, and began a lifelong conversation, a rollercoaster ride which was as complex and nuanced as the movie itself.
I regularly post creative pieces which help folks connect with the Bible in a contemporary and down-to-earth way. Please feel free to make use of them if they inspire you. I also post daily short thoughts on Twitter and have produced a variety of books, most of which draw on the Bible.
