By Otis Moss III (trade paperback)
Every Sunday, more than 5,000 people come to hear Otis Moss III preach at Chicago’s Trinity United of Christ. According to Common, hip hop artist, actor, and member of trinity. “A message from Otis Moss III always teaches about love, justice, and commitment to the community. It’s good to have a pastor who’s real and relevant.”
Moss describes himself as, “a jazz-influenced pastor with a hip hop vibe committed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ rooted in love and justice.” And he admits he can talk endlessly about theology, popular culture, and movies. Especially movies.
That’s why he’s based some of his best sermon on these powerful films:
The Wiz, 12 Years a Slave, The Butler, The Book of Eli, The Color Purple, Avatar, Flight, and For Colored Girls
Read this book if you love movies and want to find even deeper meaning in them. Discussion question are included, making it ideal for individuals or groups, movie nights and book clubs.
As Pastor Moss says, “If you think about it, movie theaters are the modern cathedrals. Where else, outside of the church, do we gather for a shared experience and are not bothered by the outburst and abouts and shouts of neighbors?”
