‘Noah’ Film Receives Praise From Christian Evangelicals Unfazed By ‘Creative Interpretation’

Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming Biblical drama “Noah” may be “the least biblical biblical film ever made,” as the director said, but it turns out quite a few Christian leaders enjoy the film in spite of that.

Cooke Pictures, a company that produces media programming for nonprofit and religious organizations, released a video on Friday showing Christian leaders reacting to “Noah.” Despite objections from some in the religious community saying the film took unwarranted creative license with the Bible story, not everyone is so critical.

Leaders from organizations like American Bible Society, National Catholic Register, The King’s College, Q Ideas, Hollywood Prayer Network, and Focus on the Family offer their opinions in the video — and, for the most part, they are glowing.

Here are some of the Christian leaders’ reactions:

“Darren Aronofsky is not a theologian, nor does he claim to be. He is a filmmaker and a storyteller, and in ‘Noah’, he has told a compelling story. It is a creative interpretation of the scriptural account that allows us to imagine the deep struggles Noah may have wrestled with as he answered God’s call on his life.” — Jim Daly, President, Focus on the Family

“‘Noah’ is big and bold and entertaining, and without a doubt pro-faith and pro-God.” — Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, President, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference
