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.

PETTICOAT RANCH

Day 3 Tuesday



Romance. This is one of my least favorite genres, but every once in a while an author manages to pull it off in a way that even I find myself liking it. This is one of those times. The beauty of this romance is that the people seem realistic. It's not about some Prince Charming riding into the story to save his princess. It's about two people, very much like you and me, who are thrown into a situation where love blossoms all on its own. For these two, Clay and Sophie, it's a true miracle.



Sophie is used to looking out for herself and her girls. She takes the intrusion of Clay into her life as nothing but an unwanted aggravation. Besides, she's not trying to be found. She's trying to hide out from the people who killed her husband. So when Clay informs her they will be going to church she's really riled. And that's just one instance. Time and again they clash always leaving Sophie wondering if she shouldn't have left him in the ravine where she found him.



With Clay it's much the same story. He's used to riding the range and hanging out with other men. Now he's suddenly thrust into a world of women. When he lays down the law the girls cry. And when they cry he wishes he were back on the range. He's as stubborn as Sophie, which not only makes for a good story, but is realistic. Two people becoming one, like the Bible says, doesn't happen overnight. And these two find out just how true that is. So who has to change? Sophie or Clay? Hmmm.



Built into this is the love of God. He understands Sophie's needs, but He also understands the needs that Clay has. Neither admit to having these needs, but as the story moves forward you can see the Lord drawing them closer and closer together. So in that sense it's also a romance about our relationship with God. When we make Him the center of our life, He is able to take us and make us into what pleases us and others as well. This is one of those back stories that comes up when you take a closer look. So take a closer look. Buy the book and discover your own fascinations with it.
