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.

Day 2 Monday

“The Harvest”, by Lori Z. Scott was a most pleasant introduction to Catholic science fiction for this non-Catholic reader. Without straying from the tenets of Catholicism she managed to engage me in a story that asked the question, “How do we define life, that is human life with a soul?” This was one amazing and complex story of the unfolding of truth, the revealing of evil and the emergence of love.

Our readers are going to want me to say more and I hesitantly add some particulars. I'm hesitant, however, because I hate to ruin a good story. Let's just say that the prevailing theory of what it takes to be considered “human” is challenged and answered in two different ways. It is answered by the rationalists who would like to see God crammed back into some corner where they can control Him, and it is answered in tears of realization that God is Author of all life.

Lori, we've never met, but you did an absolutely superb job in answering a universal question about what it means to be human. This carries with it so many other lessons that it could easily have been the only story in the book and I would have loved it none-the-less. Thank you for helping us to see a universe a bit larger than the one we had believed in beforehand.

I am humbled by your kind words. Thank you! Since I often work with children, I can't help but catch some of their enthusiasm about even the smallest thingsin life. I'm glad some of that child-like joy and wonder spilled over into the story. (My nine-year-old finds things like snowflakes and ants and rocks and dandelions and dental floss fascinating. And you know what? So do I!)

P.S. If you have children ages 6-10, they might enjoy my new children's fiction series coming out this summer. The first book is called MEGHAN ROSE ON STAGE. :)

David likes to be coy with the plot, but we're not so shy. We think you'll love it even better when you know more. Here's the plot teaser for "The Harvest":

Barry Martinez, a doctor-turned-priest, has the distasteful duty of harvesting the organs from a dead HuNome, a genetically engineered chimera used for work on the moon and for replacement parts for humans on Earth. HuMones, made by combining human and animal DNA, are considered less than human; even the Church has remained undecided on just how human these workers are. Can Fr. Martinez see past the strange cat-like eyes into the souls beyond? And if he does, will he champion their freedom as Moses once championed God’s Chosen?

Thanks for the great review, David. Lori may be humbled, but she deserves the praise.
