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 3 Tuesday

Today, with the help of Adrienne Ray, we take a short trip to Mars in her story “Hopkin's Well”. There are several things that make for a good sci-fi story. They are, in my opinion, space, time-travel, aliens, spacecrafts and advanced technology. In a sense this includes them all, but that's only if you include the land rover as a spacecraft. The feeling of “being there” in this story is powerful. No writer could ask for a better portrayal.

We are immediately introduced to a couple of characters, Private Oscar Talbot and Sergeant Ellis Bethesda. Understandably Bethesda is Talbot's superior. We learn that Talbot is a “Jumper”, which I'll leave you to discover on your own. The good sergeant and private are on a mission to do away with rebels at a place called Hopkin's Well on the red dusty planet. What actually transpires is quite interesting.

Like other stories in INFINITE SPACE, INFINITE GOD, “Hopkin's Well seeks to expose some truths that would rather remain hidden, reveal others that may not even have been considered, and offer a message of redemption to some interesting people. That's about all I can say without ruining a truly remarkable story. Get it, read it, love it. That's all I can say.

We loved Adrienne's whole new take on transporter technology. Dr. McCoy would have been horrified!

Here's a teaser for "Hopkins' Well":

Private Oscar Talbot is an ordinary soldier with an ordinary mission: to scout the defenses of the town of Hopkins’ Well in prelude to attack. Sure the mission means using transporter technology to get to Mars, but the tax break is great and what’s the big deal? When the mission goes wrong, Talbot discovers that his government doesn’t want to subdue the colony, but destroy it; that the sands of Mars are haunted by the last battalion sent on the mission, and that he, himself, is no longer human but made from the sands of Mars itself.
