Theology by Eavesdropping

Well, I better take heed of what he has to say, because this nice person is a possible candidate for being my external examiner -- if I'll ever get examined at all ...

'... if film and theology are to be successfully brought together and understood with authority and integrity, those working in this field should be prepared to break new ground and listen with patience, respect, and with a critical ear to the conversations that are taking place below the radar of the theologian's ivory tower.'

Christopher Deacy, last sentence in
'Redemption Revisited: Doing Theology at Shawshank',
Journal of Contemporary Religion
21:2 (May 2006) 149-162.
