The Gospel According to the Wiz

And Other Sermons from Cinema



Every Sunday, Otis Moss III and his preaching attract over 5,000 people to Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ.

Moss describes himself as, "a jazz-influenced pastor with a hip-hop vibe committed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ rooted in love and justice." He admits he can talk endlessly about theology, popular culture, and movies, and has even based some of his best sermons, collected in this book, on these powerful films: The Wiz, 12 Years a Slave, The Butler, The Book of Eli, The Color Purple, Avatar, Flight, and For Colored Girls.

Discussion questions are included, making it ideal for individuals or groups, movie nights and book clubs.
