TRUMBO: Wisdom and Love | FCC 109

For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? For what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

– Mark 8:36-37 NASB

Wounds from a friend are received as well-meant, but an enemy’s kisses are insincere.

– Proverbs 27:6 CJB

In Finding Christ In Cinema we dig deeper into the silver-screen classics of yesteryear as well as the box-office hits of today. We take a closer look at the stories they tell and see if we find the face of Jesus looking back. Together we explore the deeper meanings of these films; their plots and their twists; the characters and their choices; and see how we can relate them to the gospel of salvation and ultimately our Christian walk.
