Remember the movie “Noah?” When it came out 16 months ago, I wrote a blog post about the fact that even though it wasn’t the Biblical story, Christians should see it. After all, hundreds of thousands of others would see it, and why not invite a non-believer to the movie, and then take them out for coffee and share the real story? I’d been on the set and met the filmmakers, then wrote the post. But more than 1,000 responses later (on the blog and my social media sites), I realized just how many people hated that idea. And I mean hated. The rage was so great it actually prompted me to write a follow up. I also did various other posts you can see here. (Or search the blog for “Noah”.)
And like the film or not, it did motivate thousands of people back to the scripture, as I reported here.
I’m not campaigning either way. My reason for writing this post was based on a conversation with Lisa Swain, film professor at Biola University. She promoted me to ask my readers, “Now, almost two years out, have you changed your opinion? Any evolution or transitions in your thinking about the movie from a longer range perspective? Do you still hate it? Like it? Why?
I’d love to find out. Let me know your thoughts below….
