behind the screen

to bring you this story on ZENIT about a book edited by two friends of mine, Barbara Nicolosi and Spencer Lewerenz: Behind the Screen: Hollywood Insiders on Faith, Film and Culture.

I wrote a review on Amazon for the book. Of course, knowing some of the contributors may make me a bit biased, but hopefully biased in a good way:

Many people sense that our culture is broken, but not everyone has the vision, courage and drive to do something about it. This is a book about a community of people who have decided to make a positive contribution to culture and the human family through their gifts of creativity, intelligence and faith.

I had a number of the contributors to this book as faculty members when I attended the Act One: Writing for Hollywood program in Chicago in 2002. Their witness and message was compelling enough to nudge me out of my comfortable life and job in the Midwest and to come out to Los Angeles to contribute to the mission. Read the book and be inspired.
