Spencer Lewerenz and Barbara Nicolosi have taken a decidedly different approach in their book, Behind the Screen: Hollywood Insiders On Faith, Film, and Culture. Their aim: to help those who want to be in the movies – and those who just like going to them.

It gave me a better understanding of why the Hollywood community views Christians they way it does, and how some Christian movie makers look at their work and how many see themselves as missionaries in the field there. There were also some good pointers on how to effectively communicate with decision makers in Hollywood. A good book at a good price. Наиболее популярные в Научная литература.

Behind the Screen is a collection of essays written by Hollywood writers and producers longing to integrate their faith and work. Their years of experience shine through in thought provoking essays regarding culture, faith and the entertainment industry. These are people that know of what they speak, and those that 1) wish to make a living in the entertainment industry and 2) think they know how to *fix* Hollywood need to read this book and take its words to heart.

I initially read this book in one sitting, but there is too much contained in these pages for just a one-time read. While I'm not a screenwriter and won't be moving to Hollywood, this book resonates with me as a writer, for much of its wisdom is applicable to writing as a whole, and life in general.

The essays in this book are thought-provoking and in a few instances, have even challenged me---something a book rarely does for me these days. Behind the Screen is a book that will remain on my shelves for a long time to come.

There are plenty of wet-behind-the-ears dreamers who come to Hollywood hoping to break into screenwriting. And some of those dreamers are Christians. The business isn't easy to start with, but when one is also trying to live a particular type of faith-life, it can get complicated. So I appreciated this book very much.

Some of the writers, like Ralph Winter, describe occasions where they made choices (like spending time with family instead of taking a job in London) that non-believers in Hollywood really do not understand. I think hearing of those sorts of choices is an important lesson to anyone (not just Christians) who wants to get in to Show Business.

There's a wide variety of essays here, each valuable. From how to prepare oneself for being in the business, to recommendations on learning craft (very important in my mind), to the thoughtful matters of content in one's stories, there is something here on all of these. The end result, I hope, is to make it clear to the dreamers that they need to be well rounded, in their craft and in their lives, when they make the leap into the film & television business.

Everyone hoping to pursue this career needs to give some thought to these matters. And the words of wisdom in this book should help that process.

For decades devout Christians have hunkered in their religious bunkers trying to hold off the "world" -- and occasionally tossing a flaming sanctimonious protest out of their hole, hoping to change the world so it would be "safe" for their kind. If only, while they were down there, they would read the Gospels and discover that their hero (Christ) was rarely more than an arm's reach from the kind of people Christians try to separate themselves from... and telling stories in the process. For 30 years I've encouraged Christians to "Pray for the Christians attempting to influence our society with Biblical values and ideas through their vocations in Television, Film, Art, Entertainment, Literature, Journalism, Education, Academe, Professional Sports and Politics. God has called these individuals and gifted them like Bezalel (Exodus 31, 35, 36) to be Salt and Light to our culture." And if you're so led, "Consider a career as a cultural influencer. As a Christian you can light some candles in the darkness of our society. Prepare for a career in secular media or entertainment. Then, as you excel and gain recognition, use your influence to impart Biblical Christian values to the world." I know many of the writers in this volume, and I continue to pray for them. They are doing what the rest of us should be doing en masse.

As a broad orientation for what's happening in applying faith through the Hollywood entertainment industry, this book is both interesting and practical. It offers a mix of history, theology, and advice without jargon that is particularly helpful to those wanting to enter the industry or who are just curious about the spiritual possibilities today. The writers know what's going on in the industry today and share their perspectives and experience.

I also recommend a great book Hollywood Faith: Holiness, Prosperity, and Ambition in a Los Angeles Church. There's quite a bit of historical background given from the beginning of the industry until now. It also includes a lot of depth in exploring the lives of Christians trying to make it in Hollywood while living out their Christian faith. Lots of great insight on Christianity in Hollywood right up to today.

Hollywood needs our prayers, talent and money! This book gave me such insight and hope about the calling of Christian screenwriting on my life. It also opened my eyes to a world I never knew existed.

Everything a Christian needs to get initiated into Hollywood-think can be found here, whether your ambition is to be an actor, an executive or just influence Hollywood to make better movies. A diverse collection of essays from Christians who have made it into the "inside" -- and no wonder. Their book is deep and entertaining as well.

Many people sense that our culture is broken, but not everyone has the vision, courage and drive to do something about it. This is a book about a community of people who have decided to make a positive contribution to culture and the human family through their gifts of creativity, intelligence and faith.

I had a number of the contributors to this book as faculty members when I attended the Act One: Writing for Hollywood program in Chicago in 2002. Their witness and message was compelling enough to nudge me out of my comfortable life and job in the Midwest and to come out to Los Angeles to contribute to the mission. Read the book and be inspired.
