  • Description: A serious, scene by scene, in-depth theological study of the Mel Gibson film The Passion of the Christ, Dr. Miller's analysis not only focuses on the more obvious Marian, Eucharistic, and Incarnational themes, but she also discusses and explains the more difficult images and gestures of the movie. Written in a very reader-friendly style, the book also discusses the film's depiction of the Jews and Romans from a theological and cultural perspective and examines the various sources of The Passion, notably the Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ by Anne Catherine Emmerich. One chapter examines how the movie has changed people's lives and an Appendix compares The Passion of the Christ to other movies about the life of Jesus.
