On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast:
It’s been right at 30 years since Marty, Doc, Biff, George, and Lorraine first appeared on our movie screens– yes! 30 years! With the upcoming release of the 30th Anniversary edition of Back to the Future, the impending theatrical run, and heck, because we just really like the movie, we decided to have a conversation about a movie that has not lost a bit of relevance in all those years. How is that even possible? We note that few movies have ever stayed relevant for that long and fewer movies about time travel have still ever been made. What is it that seems to make this movie “timeless”? We try and figure it out.
This week’s panel included Josh Crabb and Mark Wingerter.
