Way back in the ’70s, when dinosaurs roamed the earth, Frederica was taking courses with titles like “German Film of the 1930s.” With an English major and Cinema Studies minor, her goal was to become movie critic for The Village Voice. God has a sense of humor. Today, in addition to penning reviews for CT Movies and National Review, she also writes regularly for Beliefnet.com, First Things, Books & Culture, Christianity Today, and many other publications. So far she’s published 8 books, primarily about ancient Eastern Christian spirituality, and about 600 articles—most of which are posted on her website, Frederica.com (that’s also where you can check her busy speaking schedule). Her favorite movie genre is dark comedy (e.g., Dr. Strangelove). She doesn’t say “black comedy” any more, not since someone asked, “You mean like Spike Lee?”more
