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


Welcome to Day 6 of GENTLE JOURNEY's Tag Team posting. Today you'll have the privilege, if you can call it that, of going to my site and reading my post.

First, a little about me. At nearly 56 years old I'm still a red head, although I have less hair now. And the beard in that picture is gone too. I love reading and writing, especially things that are filled with action and drama. Jeffery Deaver is one of my very favorite mystery writers, because he includes forensics into his stories. In fact the Lincoln Rhyme novels are built around that very thing. I also like him because he's a humble man and has been one of my chief supporters as I've been writing. That's not to say I don't like greats like Terri Blackstock and Brandilyn Colliins. I do. In fact I feel a closeness (in the Lord mind you) with Terri.

I've been married for almost 35 years to the same wonderful woman. Barbara Ann means the world to me. I think I've been mostly an annoyance to her. Everytime I'd write something, short story, article, poem, whatever, she'd say, "So, when are you going to get it published?" Well, I finally got something published. THE 3RD COVENANT has its rough spots, but is a really great premier novel. We have 2 grown children. Brent and his wife Laura, are preparing for the mission field with Pioneer Bible Translators. Right now they're in Dallas, TX with their 2 kids (Yup, I'm a grandfather) getting ready to take courses in linguistics and other related subjects as preparation to entering the field. (If you'd like to support them email me at davidbrollier@yahoo.com and I'll get you their address and some information about that). Carrie, the younger of the 2 has her Masters in Deaf Education and has spent the last year teaching pre-school deaf children. She'll be re-locating to the Boston area in the near future. We're proud of both my kids.

In addition to this I'm a retired correctional officer who now works part time as a library clerk, a licensed minister, and, oh yeah, a published author. Okay, "tag" your it. Go to my site, Christian Mystery Writers and read my review of GENTLE JOURNEY there. You can "tag" me by leaving a comment. Don't forget to come back here for a wrap up of the tour and some surprises.

It's good to know more about you. It definitely helps to build up the image I have of you in my head!

I like the fact that there are a few other redheads in the CFRB. I always like red hair (even if mine has done a disappearing act, I still think of myself as a redhead)

Redheads are redheads for life, that is the true redheads. Those "posers" who dye their hair, well, I feel sorry for them ;-)

Originally I used to ask God to change my hair (when I was very young). I even thanked God for a friend that helped me forget that I had red hair. Then I read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Red-headed League". Now I feel we're special.

See how powerful the written word can be?
