Dr. Larry Poland’s book, Chasm: Crossing the Divide Between Hollywood and People of Faith, explores the century-old warfare between the world of entertainment and mainstream Americans, those “flyovers” between Hollywood and New York. It is filled with fascinating first-person stories exposing the conflicts over excess, entitlement, morality, God, faith, and intrinsic value. Dr. Poland’s three decades in Hollywood as a consultant on the faith community informs his analysis. Stunning stories from inside the industry are told with insight and good humor. Biting criticisms of those on both sides of the divide end with a call to build trust and goodwill.
