    The New Arts and Faith Top 100

    As some of you will know I'm a regular contributor to the Arts and Faith discussion forum having stumbled across an earlier incarnation back in 2002. 3 times since then the group has produced its Top 100 spiritual films, in 2004, 2005 and 2006.

    The board came under new ownership last year and Image Journal who now run the site decided it was time to produce a new list. Unfortunately I didn't have time to vote this time around, but the new list became official today.

    There have been a lot of changes since the 2006 list: Almost half the films on the list are new; even fewer of the films are in English; and, sadly, the number of Bible films has dropped dramatically, including The Miracle Maker which dropped off the list entirely despite being number 3 last time. There is one new Bible film on the list, however, 2006's Son of Man. And I suppose A Serious Man might also count as a version of Job.

    I've seen 45½ of the films on the list (having had to send back M because the subtitles were unreadable) so there is plenty to get my teeth into.
