In light of blockbuster films such as "Noah" and the upcoming "Exodus," many Christians are wondering what is causing the upsurge in Hollywood films featuring Biblical content today.
Within the past year, the Bible has been interpreted several times on both the big screen as well as television. In addition to the aforementioned "Noah" and "Exodus," "Left Behind" starring Nicolas Cage will reach theaters Oct. 3, while HBO recently added "The Leftovers," a series loosely based on the rapture, to its network. The list of faith-based entertainment made by non-Christians seems to be growing longer with each passing year.
This week, The Christian Post spoke with three different Hollywood insiders about the amount of Scripture found in secular entertainment of late, asking for their thoughts on the possible reasons behind the uptick. First, actress Alexa PenaVega drew attention to the violence and uncertainty in today's state of affairs.

People like the idea of marriage without realizing that it is not about what a person can take from it but rather what they can give, says Steven Furtick, lead pastor of Elevation Church.
Furtick's message was the first sermon in his series "Meant to Be" that kicked off on Sunday. Taking from the biblical verses found in 1 Corinthians 7, which speak about sexual relations within marriage, he focused on the issues that most people seem to ignore.
"A lot of you are in love with the picture of marriage. If you're going to get married, you better be ready to go to work and do a job then come home and do another job because it takes work … Paul says (in 1 Corinthians 7), come into marriage not for what you can get emotionally or sexually but what you can give," said Furtick. more >>
