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.

HIGH STREET, by Jack Stinson

Day 2 Monday



The story HIGH STREET, takes place in Columbus, OH, oddly enough not on High Street at all, but because of High Street. The person's life we follow is Jamie Boyer. A smart young man from the western farmlands of Ohio, Jamie is lured away the sudden rush of “freedom”.


Make no mistake, everyone has a High Street they need to be aware of, a lure away from the normal, boring things we've known all our lives. It may be alcohol and drugs as it was with Jamie. It may be pornography. It may be any one of a million different vices all designed to give us a rush of pleasure. Like Jamie, however, we usually find out that our story doesn't stay on High Street, but languishes in back alleys and in the dark corners of our lives BECAUSE we were lured to taste the pleasures of High Street. No one is immune.


Jesus said, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” (Matthew 7:13-15) Look at this statement carefully. It's as if Jesus knew about the bars, the crack houses and the prostitutes Jamie encountered on High Street. That's because High Street represents that broad way, that false freedom.


So begins Jack Stinson's HIGH STREET, a sobering tale of people lured from one life into another. We will look at this later.
