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 Five



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

Another of my favorite stories is another of Daniel I. Weaver's stories, “Seeing Blind”. Years in the future on a distant planet an evil darkness is engulfing that planet threatening to swallow it whole and keep light from ever touching its face again. An oracle has been searching for some way to fight against this darkness, some way to protect his people. Where he goes, what he finds and how he is enabled to protect the planet is just plane good writing. It was like having Stephen King give the Sunday School lesson. Dan can get a little graphic, although I think this is one of his milder pieces, but still, it can get to you. If you don't like descriptive evil stay away from Dan's writing. He has a tendency to write things the way he sees them. Seeing blind is no exception, although the twists it takes are unexpected. - David

David, I think that "It was like having Stephen King give the Sunday School lesson" comment is going to to stick with me as a favorite for a long time. I loved that.

I'm very happy that you enjoyed this story. This story's twists are of a sort I haven't seen done before (not saying it hasn't, just that I haven't come across it yet) and I wanted to do something that would send a reader's imagination into overdrive. Of course, I enjoyed it so much that I've thought of about a hundred other shorts I could write in the same vein, but we'll see.

Thanks for posting for the anthology.

God Bless,
Daniel I Weaver
