Book Overview

Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ has become one of the most controversial films ever made, and it is already a blockbuster of cinematography. Its defenders passionately regard it as one of the most moving and influential pieces of religious art ever created. But its detractors argue with comparable vehemence that the violence and gore it contains, its alleged anti-Semitism, a particular take on the Christian message, and the lack of historical and Biblical accuracy, make it nothing more than a kind of political propaganda. Father Thomas Rosica hailed as one of the great masterpieces of religious art, but the secular humanist Paul Kurtz thinks of it as a political weapon in the hands of the religious right. Film critics are divided in their judgment, giving the film anywhere from no stars to five stars. Regardless of what one thinks of the film, however, its impact both personal and social is beyond question.

   Painless Way to Learn Philosophy
The books in this series are great. It seems that a popular movie or TV series gets a backlash. The Harry Potter books and movies are examples. ThePassion of the Christ is a book written by Christopher Gibson. fundamentalist Christians are upset that the books are teaching witchcraft. The movie is accused of being anti- Semite. Prominent philosophers are being asked to comment on the charges and the movie in this series of books. The essays that challenge the reader to think about and decide for himself about the charges are different from the loud, emotionally loaded comments being made. These books are great to read. It is a way to bring philosophy to the public in connection with a story that is familiar to a broad range of people.
