+  “The Son of God” – Another Opinion

  • Description: In a recent article Dr. Monica Miller asks, Is Son of God a good movie about Jesus or should we look for another?

I am glad, even grateful, that this movie does indeed treat Christ as the Son of God. But while believers can be grateful for this pious faith statement, as cinematic art it is an unremarkable movie and we should hope for something better.” Al disagrees and they discuss why.
