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.

GENTLE JOURNEY, by Elaine Lyons Bach

It's Day 5. Tag, you're it! Today we'd like to introduce to you another CFRB member, and another red head, Rebecca Wire. Here's what she posted on her site about herself:

Rebecca received her B.A. in English from the University of Maryland Baltimore County in 2002. She minored in History and Literature. Her favorite courses included Creative Writing, military history courses, and “anything having to do with Shakespeare”. After
graduating she married and moved from Maryland to Virginia .

While living in Maryland, Rebecca had been an ESL (English as a Second Language) tutor for several years. In 2004, she founded a non-profit ministry helping English language learners practice their English. Guide My Words functions today as a means for students to use the Internet to find Conversation Partners and for churches to learn more about establishing ESL ministries. Rebecca has written dozens of Bible-based lesson plans, compiling several workbooks for ESL classes and Bible studies. She has led a tutor training workshop and is certified in Conversational English Language Training through the North American Mission Board.

Also in 2004, Rebecca began writing book reviews for Roundtable Reviews. Rebecca served as an occasional proofreader of reviews submitted by other writers with the site. During her time with Roundtable Reviews, Rebecca wrote over 40 book reviews from a variety of genres. She ended her time at Roundtable in early 2008 and began to write book reviews for Christian Fiction Review Blog.

In 2007, Rebecca began a freelance writing and editing career. She became a member of The Christian PEN Proofreaders and Editors Network. Rebecca also began offering manuscript critiques for aspiring authors.

Rebecca offers writing and editing services in the form of Researching, Interviewing, Audio Transcribing, Copyediting, and Ghostwriting. She is currently ghostwriting a nonfiction work.

Rebecca lives in Northern Virginia with her husband and their three boys. They are active in local church planting and are passionate about international missions. They seek to serve God by serving others in whatever way God leads them.

Now it's your turn. She's the one posting today. Go to her site, Welcome to Rebecca and "tag" her by leaving a comment there.

Rebecca is a delightful young lady. I love her zeal for the Lord.
By the way, I am/was a redhead, too. Unfortunately, my hair changed as I got older, so now it is mostlly brown and gray.
