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 Six



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

For a bit of really out of the ordinary you might want to try “At the Mountains of Lunacy” by Stephen L. Rice. In this delightfully absurd twist of fantasy you find yourself among a group of “plumbers” hired by a king, who is not quite all there himself, to clear the pathway through the Mountains of Lunacy. On the way you meet some extraordinary and interesting characters. To better understand this story you have to realize that they are doing double-duty as mail carriers since nothing in the postal code says postmen have to go to these Mountains and since the plumbers are going anyway...well you guessed it. They draw the duty of being mail carriers themselves. That, however, is probably the least weird thing you'll read in this story. It has monsters, zombies and werewolves, but the real dangers lie deeper than them. Of course I'm not about to give away the story. You know me better than that. Just brace yourself. Everything you've ever learned about, well these different mythological creatures is, shall we say, not quite right. I'm sure you will have a lot of fun reading it, as I did. Just to put your minds at ease, even with the inclusion of some of the most horrible creatures possible the work itself is not horror. - David
