Movies with the title Gospel According To…

The Gospel According to Jesus – For Christians of all stripes, the gospels are rich with messages and wisdom. They’re also rife with historical significance, giving readers insight into the politics and pressures of ancient times. But for most, they simply provide much-needed guidance for murky lives and hectic times. Join Maya Angelou, Deepak Chopra, Ram Dass, Erica Jong, Norman Lear, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins as they discuss and read from the spiritual text.

Gospel According to Al GreenA hit crooner who poured his heart into 1970s soul, Al Green left the pop scene for a career as a gospel singer and Pentecostal minister. In this 1984 documentary, he speaks at length with his first producer, tracing the roots of Green’s long, spiritual journey; his close friends and colleagues are also interviewed. Much of the footage was shot at Green’s house of worship: the Full Gospel Tabernacle Church in Memphis, Tenn.

The Gospel According to Philip K. Dick – Legendary sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick is the fascinating subject of a documentary that plumbs the dark corners of the tortured writer’s life. Five failed marriages, excessive drug addictions and intense delusions (which included the belief that he was living parallel existences) possessed Dick’s life, eventually wrecking his health and speeding him to a premature demise. Sounds like the fodder for one of Dick’s short stories.
