This article examines developments in the academic study of the relationship between the Bible, religion, and film since 2000. The author reflects upon the status of the "discipline" of "religion and film" asking whether or not this area of study has evolved into a full-fledged addition to the religious studies curriculum. In addition, the article offers a brief examination of some representative films that intersect with religion and the Bible, and reviews some of the representative scholarship in the field. The conclusion of the article is that interest in religion and film is strong, and that scholarship is ongoing and productive.
