Movies are deeply ingrained in American culture, showcasing many of the pain points, troubles, and even joys of the culture. They are a perfect way for Christians to see where the world needs to hear about Christ. Dig into seven different movies with Rev. Jeffrey Skopak to see how blockbuster hits, or even loved favorites, can spark easy conversation about Christ and His love for the world. 

Each film contains discussion questions to help you think critically about the movie and see how to apply similar questions in your conversations. Time stamps for specific movies scenes are also included so that you can follow along as Skopak unpacks each film. 

Featured Movies:
Captain America: The First Avenger
Hidden Figures
Toy Story
A Star Is Born
The Princess Bride

Jeffrey Skopak was born and raised in New Jersey. He has served as a pastor all over the United States, from small urban ministries to large churches and schools. He is currently the senior pastor of Grace Lutheran Church and School in Florida, where he lives with his wife, Amy, and their rescue dog, Reggie.

What Others are Saying

"How do entertainment trends and the biblical narrative relate to each other? Jeffrey Skopak has masterfully crafted an answer. By connecting selected stories from the big screen with the saving stories of Jesus, Skopak interprets Hollywood with God’s Holy Word. . . Skopak lays bare both the contemporary significance as well as the eternal considerations we can and should draw from motion pictures."

—John Arthur Nunes, Ph.D., President, Concordia College New York

"Jeff Skopak has put together a delightful study and presents in a very relatable way how the movies can, and often do, influence our faith life. . . Drawing on popular and celebrated movies, the book takes readers on a journey of insight and enjoyment as we look at movies in light of culture from a new perspective. It is the marriage of how we can use means like our modern culture as reflected in the movies and gain deeper spiritual insights, all as a platform to connect people to Jesus. "

—Rev. Dr. Gregory S. Walton, President,The Flordia-Georgia District of the LCMS
