Product description

From the Inside Flap

Every Sunday, more than 5,000 people come to hear Otis Moss III preach at Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ. According to Common, hip hop artist, actor, and member of Trinity, "A message from Otis Moss III always teaches about love, justice, and commitment to the community. It's good to have a pastor who's real and relevant."

Moss describes himself as, "a jazz-influenced pastor with a hip-hop vibe committed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ rooted in love and justice." And he admits he can talk endlessly about theology, popular culture, and movies. Especially movies.

That's why he's based some of his best sermons, collected in this book, on these powerful films:

12 Years a Slave

The Butler

The Book of Eli

The Color Purple

The Wiz

Avatar

Flight

For Colored Girls

Read this book if you love movies and want to find even deeper meaning in them. Discussion questions are included, making it ideal for individuals or groups, movie nights and book clubs.

As Pastor Moss says, "If you think about it, movie theaters are the modern cathedrals. Where else, outside of the church, do we gather for a shared experience and are not bothered by the outburst and shouts of neighbors?"
