I missed this podcast
Tim and Jonathan took 2 years off this podcast and I thought you were done! Welcome back! Can I admit a secret? I struggle with watching some of the films they review, (my violence level is PG. sorry!) but I listen to be informed of how great movies can portray Christian themes. I enjoy listening to their perspectives and I hope you create more podcasts.
For the thoughtful Christian
I found this podcast when I searched for reviews of First Reformed and have listened to every episode since. Great mix of fun banter, film history, and thoughtful discussion from a Christian perspective.
10/10 Would listen again
Seeing a new episode of Cinema Faith available is one of the highlights of my day. The only bummer is they only release an episode a month. Good movies, good banter, interesting insights.
