In The Bed In all actuality, it would be exceedingly difficult for any feature film to match the emotional depth and breadth of a good work of literature. Although Hollywood will claim otherwise, a true story cannot be told with images but with the connotations, the complexities, and the nuances of words, and with words alone.

Bible in Roman Catholic Theology. The Roman Catholic Church took advantage of the fact that it received criticism and went on to produce new and better interpretations of the Bible, without damaging the image of Roman Catholicism.
