The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of using movies in the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) classroom to teach theological doctrines in a course called Faith & Film. The study proposes that the majority of students entering a global program are not prepared for the dense prose of content courses, and that alternative or supplemental forms of instruction are required to aid comprehension of course material. During a 15-week experimental period (three hours per week), 40 university students participated in the study that utilized the New Teacher Center (NTC) reading strategies as the pedagogical basis for the use of movies to teach the theological doctrines. Using both quantitative (survey questionnaire) and qualitative (reflection essays) methods, the study concludes that movies are a useful and beneficial resource to teach theology in the EAP classroom. The study provides suggestions on the NTC’s reading comprehension strategies in conducting lectures and also asserts that the use of movies contributes to the construction of in-depth knowledge and thinking skills, the expansion of opportunities for interaction, the development of historical, theological and philosophical awareness as well as increasing student interest, enjoyment, and satisfaction of the course.
