Reviews
William D. Romanowski
-- author of Eyes Wide Open: Looking for God in Popular Culture
"Beautiful Light is a must-read for everyone interested in movies as a way to explore the mysteries of faith. Page after page is filled with engaging, informed, and insightful analyses of a range of cinematic achievements that invite viewers to contemplate the various and nuanced ways that religion finds expression in contemporary cinema."

Robert K. Johnston
-- author of Reel Spirituality: Theology and Film in Dialogue
"Roy Anker is one of our most perceptive theology-and-film writers. Where Elijah heard God in the evocative sound of sheer silence following a storm, Anker discovers analogous thin places in the depictions of human experience in film. Thoughtful, thorough, and eloquent, Anker shows readers how nine movies illuminate the mystery of being. Here is theological film criticism at its best."
