Think about the film, The Message, which is the epic account of the birth of Islam that you just viewed. What did you learn from it? What elements of the Muslim faith were emphasized? What elements of the film seemed strange to you? Who do you think was the target audience? Why?
Think about a Judeo-Christian epic that you may have seen (think, The Ten Commandments, The Greatest Story Ever Told, The Passion of the Christ). What similarities do you notice between them and The Message? What are some key differences?
