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.

TRUE LIGHT, by Terri Blackstock

Day 2 Monday

In each of Terri Blackstock's “Restoration Series” novels, she has placed us in a world without electricity. As such people have to devise ways of doing things that were routinely done for them. Water, sewage, transportation, lighting and cooking were only a few of these. Now it is winter. Don't you love a novel set in winter when the temperature is in the 90s? Yet, the cold presents a new set of obstacles; scarcity of food, heat and the need for lighting is intensified.

TRUE LIGHT begins with a young man named Zach, hunting and killing a deer to feed his family. It's a good kill ... until he turns around and finds a gun pointed at him. Police show up, the deer is gone and suspicion falls on Mark Green, Oak Hollow's local scapegoat.

In TRUE LIGHT we witness the polarizing of the different people in town, the prejudices arise to deadly levels. We see a young man who, while on the run, takes the time out to help a needy family. We watch in awe as some people band together with one goal, to see that Mark Green pays for what he has done. We see the blossoming romance of two people under the worst of circumstances, and the struggling with forgiveness a Christian sometimes endures.

All of this makes for one fantastic story, but before you turn the page and say, “Those stupid people” examine yourself. What would you do under these extreme conditions? Would you side with those intent on a swift “justice”? Or would you dig to find out the truth? Woul you have the strength and courage to love, even when everyone else was against the one you loved? Would you learn the power of forgiveness? Folks, this isn't about some fictitious people. It's about you and me, the struggles and trials we face in our faith. It's about the kinds of people we meet each day and whether or not we are willing to love them as Christ commands.
