Join veteran film critic Edward McNulty in exploring the inspiring connections between faith and pop culture. Ed has been analyzing film, leading film discussions in his and other churches,  speaking at conferences, creating study guides, and publishing books on the topic for over 4 decades.

While there are a ton of online sites and magazines dedicated to reviewing films, the Visual Parables approach is unique. Ed focuses on helping make valuable connections between spirituality and film. He is interested not in just reviewing a film but also wants you to use it for ministry as well.  Thus he often provides links to further information  about the film or its makers or its  background.  He provides one or more related Scripture passages for almost every film. We invite you to browse VP’s extensive online database of film reviews. For an even deeper look into faith and film, you can become a member.
