The Stories We Tell

How TV and Movies Long for and Echo the Truth
$16.79
($19.99)
Product Description

The average American watches 5 hours of TV daily and, each year, we collectively spend about $30 billion on movies. Simply put, we're entertainment junkies. But can we learn something from our insatiable addiction to stories? Mike Cosper thinks so--arguing that popular shows and movies speak volumes about who we are as broken people living in a broken world. From horror flicks to rom-coms, the tales we tell and the myths we weave inevitably echo the one, great narrative underlying all of history: the story of man's tragic sin and God's triumphant salvation. Cosper shows how modern entertainment reveals humanity's universal longing for redemption as he explores a variety of genres, influential films, and shows, ultimately teaching us how to engage with and evaluate what we watch.
