books about movies for Christians and for anyone who watches movies with their spiritual eyes wide open
Elijah Davidson is a writer living in California. I am the author of How to Talk to a Movie: Movie-Watching as a Spiritual Exercise, the creator of the Icons of Cinema series, a contributor to God in the Movies: A Guide for Exploring Four Decades of Film, and the co-editor of the Reel Spirituality Monograph Series with Cascade Press.
Since 2011, I have co-directed the Brehm Film institute of faith and film (formerly Reel Spirituality) at Fuller Theological Seminary. In addition to publishing books about movies for Christians, I also help plan Brehm Film's screening series and write for and edit our website, Deep Focus. I frequently cover film festivals for Brehm Film, including Sundance, South By Southwest, and the Denver International Film Festival.
Alongside my vocational work as a writer and supporter of the cinematic arts, I work as the Director of Content Strategy for Fuller Seminary's Communication & Branding team. I graduated from Fuller Seminary in 2014 with a Master's of Arts in Intercultural Studies, focusing on American popular culture, theology, and the arts.
I am married, have one child, and a dog. If I am not writing or working, I am most likely camping, weather-permitting or not.
