Recommended Books II by matthew c . hoffman

The 2015 film series, Cinema of Transcendence, was largely inspired by one film book: Divine Images: A History of Jesus on the Screen by Roy Kinnard and Tim Davis. However, since our last screening a couple years ago, I have found many other books on the subject. This will be very useful to anyone interested in “Faith in Film.”
