A movie has something to say about life , however subtle or strange - sounding
its voice . The best way to understand what a movie has to say to us is to reflect
on the moments that move us , for those moments open a window to our soul .

Can a movie feed your soul? Stories. Be it a parable of Jesus, a C.S. Lewis fantasy, or a movie such as Saving Private Ryan, stories have been around since Creation, a means of both education and entertainment. By far, our favorite way to listen to a story today is at the movies, whether in a theater or a family room. Indeed, says Ken Gire, movies are the parables of our culture and —earthly stories that sometimes have heavenly meanings. Can we discern God's voice in the modern parables of film? Yes, it is there, sometimes loud and crystal-clear, sometimes barely a whisper, sometimes even despite the filmmaker's intent. In Reflections on the Movies, Ken helps us: and • sensitize our "eyes to hear and ears to hear" God speaking, and • develop the skills to understand movies and their themes, and and • learn to reflect on the medium as a form of spiritual enrichment. In 1999, Ken was one of thirty Christians selected for a month-long study under some of the film industry's top talent in Hollywood. He has led numerous spiritual retreats where he has used movie clips to illustrate his messages. Reflections on the Movies and Ken's previous books in this series and —The Reflective Live, Reflections on the Word, a devotional, and Reflections on Your Life, a journal and —are designed to help you become more spiritually sensitive to the everyday moments of life.
