The Theology of Christmas Movies
What is the true spirit of Christmas? That’s the question at the heart of countless Christmas films that clutter the airwaves this time of year. The answer one typically receives from these kinds of movies is not merely a slight deviation from the biblical storyline, but rather should be seen as a complete departure that turns our attention away from the redemption of the incarnate Son of God to a message about ourselves. The hosts will discuss this topic by walking through memorable lines from movies such as A Christmas Carol, It’s a Wonderful Life, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, and many others (originally aired 12/11/16).
