Christian Cinema

A little over 6 years ago Sharper Iron "became famous" with the discussions concerning "End of the Spear". Recently the Kendrick brothers have surprised many as "Courageous" joined "Facing the Giants" and "Fireproof" as films that have had an impact on the evangelical community.

Any thoughts?

As I recall, the "End of the Spear" controversy was focused more on the lifestyle of the star actor rather than on the idea of Christian cinema.

Danielle linked to a great essay. Other essays on the same topic have been posted here at SharperIron in the past which also provide some good food for thought on this issue.
