Why Evangelicals Didn’t Embrace “Calvary”
Mark Rodgers compares the artistic merits of Calvary to the remake of Left Behind and finds a paradox. “[T]he more a film (or song, or book for that matter) is fine tuned for the evangelical appetite, the less salient it is for the culture at large. Ironically, evangelicals want their culture products to be attractive to the world, to draw people into the truth that profoundly transformed them.”
