World Religions in Seven Sentences: A Small Introduction to a Vast Topic (Introductions in Seven Sentences)
In this brief volume in IVP Academic's Introductions in Seven Sentences, philosopher Douglas Groothuis creatively uses a single sentence representing each of several world religions as a way to open readers to their depth and complexity, including:

Atheism: "God Is Dead."
Judaism: "I Am Who I Am."
Hinduism: "You Are That."
Buddhism: "Life Is Suffering."
Daoism: "The Dao That Can Be Spoken Is Not the Eternal Dao."
Christianity: "Before Abraham Was, I Am."
Islam: "There Is One God, and Mohammad Is His Prophet."
With a sympathetic but not uncritical approach, Groothuis welcomes readers to a vital and global conversation.

The accessible primers in the Introductions in Seven Sentences collection act as brief introductions to an academic field, with simple organization: seven key sentences that give readers a birds-eye view of an entire discipline.

Seeing Is Believing: The Revelation of God Through Film (Studies in Theology and the Arts Series)
n this Studies in Theology and the Arts (STA) volume, theologian Richard Goodwin considers how the images that constitute film might be a conduit of God's revelation. By considering works by Carl Theodor Dreyer, Stanley Kubrick, Paul Thomas Anderson, Robert Bresson, Martin Scorsese, Terrence Malick, and more, Goodwin argues that by inviting emotional responses, film images can be a medium of divine revelation.

Blessed are those who have seen God... through film.
