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.

THE CHRONICLES OF SOONE: HEIR TO THE KING - Day 1

Day 1



This week CFRB is proud to begin its week-long blogtour of James Somers fantasy/sci-fi/supernatural thriller THE CHRONICLES OF SOONE: HEIR TO THE KING. Before I begin it may be of interest to readers to note that Somers has 2 more installments in his THE CHRONICLES OF SOONE series. I believe the 2nd is due out sometime in the fall. The 3rd will be next year.



Why do I call this a "fantasy/sci-fi/supernatural thriller"? Simply because Somers incorporates all 3 in such a fluid way that he seems to have created his own genre, which has yet to be named. I just couldn't in good conscience relegate this work to any one of these Biblical Speculative Fiction genres. That's right. It's also Christian. There's no preaching in the book, which I found highly remarkable since James Somers is actually Rev. James Somers, an assistant pastor in a Baptist church. He is careful to create a story that breathes with the truths of Scripture, yet not once preach. Instead he tells a tale, an extraordinary tale.



There are people who aren't going to like this work for the simple fact that it isn't a work of non-fiction. I feel sorry for them. There are others who may be put off that this work was written by a Christian with Christian themes running throughout the work. I feel doubly sorry for them. For the rest of you, you are about to be treated by a work that fits no preceding molds, lives and breathes as if it were a living thing, not just a story. In short, if you are willing to read this book you are going to be drawn by your heart, stimulated in your mind and left breathless in the end. Be sure to treat yourself to one of the best fantasies or sci-fis I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Journey with Tiet Soone to his rise to recapture the throne of his people. See how wisdom and logic are not always compatible. And well, just plain enjoy yourself.
