About this item

Divine Film Comedies juxtaposes the sacred texts of Christianity with an international array of comic films to cross-fertilize each, showing that the comic resides in the Bible, and the gospel lurks in the movies. From the story of Abram and Sarai giving birth to "Laughter" to the story of the man born blind, comedy erupts to challenge solemn readings of the texts; so too, from silent slapstick films of Charlie Chaplin through screwball comedies and satires, biblical truth rises with wisdom and grace inhabiting unlikely, and unseemly, places.
