Comment on The Last Temptation of Christ (1988 film)

In the case of The Last Temptation, if Christians had read and encouraged others to read Nikos Kazantzakis wonderful novel on which the film is based, rather than offer to buy up and destroy the film, perhaps, people would have encountered the Gospel in an unexpected place {see my “Damn Right I’ve Got the Gospel”}. (Kazantzakis’s novel deserves a post of its own. I will link it when I write it.) Yet, I suspect that despite Kazantzakis’s preface, many Christians would have misunderstood the novel as well. It is a wonder to me that while we are a so-called “people of the the Book”, many of us are poor readers {see my “Why Seven Days“, for instance}. Or become better readers of the Book see my page How to Read the Bible For All Its Worth.
