The University Library houses more than 3,500 Christian films, some dating back to the 1930s. This month, Regent Professor of Cinema and Television Andrew Quicke and former Regent President Terry Lindvall published a book made possible by the Library’s Christian film collection.
The book, Celluloid Sermons: The Emergence of the Christian Film Industry, 1930-1986, is the first scholarly work to survey the history of films made specifically for teaching and evangelizing. According to Prof. Quicke, to whom belongs much of the credit for building the Library’s Christian film collection, Celluloid Sermons is “a book that could only [have been] written at Regent University.”
The Library congratulates Prof. Quicke and Dr. Lindvall on the publication of their new book. For more information on Celluloid Sermons and the contents of the Library’s Christian film collections, see the article on the Regent News and Events page.
