Hollywood Worldviews Book Description :

Do you watch movies with your eyes open? You buy your tickets and concessions, and you walk into the theater.

Do you, too, laugh at the bumbling priest and seethe at the intolerant and abusive evangelist? Do you embrace worldviews that infect your faith and then wonder, aft...
