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.

LEAPS OF FAITH, compiled by Rob & Karina Fabian

LEAPS OF FAITH, by Rob and Karina Fabian is an anthology of faith in action, and in science fiction. We are treating this as a Tag Team Tour, meaning you will find much more on other sites. Each day I'll begin with a short blurb of a different story in this anthology. So, like the game of Tag, you, the reader are hereby tagged. The CFRB sites that will have reviews, interviews and other great posts are linked to their blogs using the ingenious buttons at the bottom of the page. See if you can find who is posting today. Word of caution. Some people post more than once.
Thursday God's Gift, by Greg Beatty, is about a man who must lose his life to find it. It is about how time travel can only work if you are willing to die, for then and only then can you live. Greg has two stories in this anthology and there's a reason for it. He has a way of making things come to life in his story. As a mystery writer I also enjoy the twists and turns he puts in his story. You never quite know how things are going to work out. Suffice it to say God's Gift is about commercializing faster than light travel (FTL). Things seem to be going along fine until the scientist in charge runs into some very major bugs. When he brings it up to his financial backer, he's given the choice, get it right or be the first one on the next ship out. What happens after that you'll have to read for your self. I have a more comprehensive, but just as evasive, post on my personal blog. You've probably already read it if you've been following the tag rules, to seek out where the new post is. If you haven't, then look again. It's there, as are a number of other great posts.

By the way, I know of at least one of these sites that will be having multiple posts, including a live interview with the compilers of this anthology. I'm not going to tell you who it is. You're going to have to find that out for yourself. After all, this is a game of Tag.
