DVD Review



I apologize for not being more active, but not having other reviewers or books to review, it's been a little difficult. However I want to let you know about this wonderful DVD "God's Not Dead." Working at the library I found it on our shelves and took it home. When I brought it back I raved about it. I wanted to take it out again, but it seems word gets around. It's always on hold for someone else. That's great.

The opening scene is in a freshman college philosophy class. The professor states he is an atheist, and asks that if everyone will sign a paper with 3 little words on it he can dispense of the dust and get to the subject. Those 3 words are "God Is Dead." One student cannot sign that. He is given 3 chances to argue the case of the existence of God before the class.

Fueled by hate on one side and a determined love of God on the other this is not your simple movie. The poor kid researches and goes off on a journey of his own to state his case. The end is nothing short of amazing. I guess telling people stuff like this is one of the reasons I can't get a hold of it a second time. It's really that good.

LIGHT AT THE EDGE OF DARKNESS - Day 3



Light at the Edge of Darkness - Day Three
compiled by Cynthia MacKinnon

So, how are we doing? Everyone enjoying this wonderful book? What? You didn't get it yet? Shame on you. You have to the end of the week before C.E. Lavender sends the Takers out to get you. Only kidding

That is the short story I'd like to talk about today. “Protected”, by C.E. Lavender is an amazing story where the hero learns what it means to be a hero late in the story. In the beginning he's a cross between someone trying to make a quick buck and someone trying to run from another above him. It involves the Takers, who are sent out to, well, take people. Our hero is sent to find a shield for his boss and falls in love with the woman he's suppose to set up to be taken. You can picture this out in the old west, up in the mountains, almost anywhere that seems remote. Make your own scenery, but don't miss out on what's going on. Our reluctant hero has learned something from the woman he's fallen in love with. What can it possibility be and can he really find himself “Protected” by it if he uses it in his own life? Well, you'll have to read it to find out. I'm not telling. Daniel I. Weaver has several stories in this anthology, this is one of the less graphic, yet somehow it is more poignant that the others. Well, at least in my opinion. - David Brollier
