Preachers know that deep insights into life, and excellent illustrative stories, can be found all over the place for those who are alert to keep looking.   Literature and journalism are an excellent place to unearth such things, and that is why the CEP website has a “Reading for Preaching” section of quotes and insights drawn from books and newspapers.  But film is also a great place to discover stories and insights and so we offer this “Movies for Preaching” section.  Many of these film summaries and individual vignettes from films are written by film expert Roy Anker, professor emeritus of English at Calvin College. Here and there time markers are included so you can go right to the appropriate spot in the movie to see a given scene.  We hope these will enrich your preaching life.
