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.

COME TO ME, by Laura Davis

During the week of September 7th CFRB will host
COME TO ME, by Laura Davis.

Day 5. Today you'll find the review for COME TO ME, by Laura Davis on Bibliophile's Retreat. I have no idea where she came up with the name for her blog, but Forest Rose, better known to us as Melissa, will give you a great review. I can say that without reading it (yet) because I know of her dedication and humility. Like some already mentioned, and some I've not mentioned simply because they aren't part of the Tag Team this month, Melissa has helped to fill in where she is most needed. She doesn't wait to be asked, but volunteers. The review she will present I am sure will not only be insightful and accurate, but professional as well. As always, check out her site and leave her a comment. These people deserve your feedback. Don't just say, "Nice site" or "Great post". Tell her what you liked. Talk to her. She doesn't bite...I promise. - David Brollier

Well since David asked nicely - I'll try and explain my blog title.

When I started it about a year ago, I knew it was going to be a book blog - reading is my favorite and nearly only hobby many times. Also an author friend had read my comments about her book that I wrote and as she has done reviews for a bookstore newsletter I believe she knows her stuff. After reading those comments her first message to me was you ought to be a book reviewer - LOL. I figured well why not at least give it a go so I started the blog.

Since I knew it was going to be all books and book related stuff, of which I've found more than enough to keep me and it afloat for ages and still not delve very much farther, I decided a bookish title must be had. Biblio means book and phile means a lover of. When this word ocurred to me I thought OK that describes me perfectly in fact I may be beyond a lover of to the point of obsessed with LOL. So then I merely needed to create a phrase that worked. Since I can often be a bit of a hermit and books are an escape many times Retreat seemed a proper addition to my title. The name flew and it stuck ever since.

Not only does it apply ot me personally it works for the blog type/subject matter and I hope appeals to other booklovers out there as a place to hang out and find new books or talk about older ones.
