What movies have you seen lately is a question almost everyone asks. "How should we watch movies Christianly" is a question Dr. Mark Eckel has been asking for thirty years. When the Lights Go Down suggests answers based on story-filled essays, movie reviews, interviews, and questions to ask while watching movies. Now the Christian practice of movie review can begin next time the lights go down! "Mark teaches how to critically review film through the lens of biblical thinking" -Barry Walton, director and producer of The High: Making the Toughest Race on Earth "I know of no other book quite like this. Highly accessible to the average layperson, it is wildly multi-faceted, a foundational course in theological movie-viewing" -Dr. Rosalie de Rosset, Professor of Communications and Literature, Moody Bible Institute "When the Lights Go Down is a gift to pastors" -Larry Renoe, Teaching Pastor at Waterstone Community Church, Littleton, Colorado "Mark Eckel ushers the church to a positive, approachable, fresh theological understanding of movies" -Jim Tudor, filmmaking professional, Twitchfilm.com film critic, and co-founder of ZekeFilm.org
