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.

May our Lord be with you now and always. Remember, God is in control, even when things look like they're crashing all around you. David

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.
Friday. The Convert, by Susanne Marie Knight, is an interesting tale about an indigenous alien who wishes to marry a human colonist to his planet. In this tale a priest must decide if he has the right under God to marry this alien to a human. He goes through a lot of psychological struggle, but when he hears the story from the alien, he begins to look at the situation with his heart. Also included in this story is how abusive we can be, simply because we don't understand, or do not seem to have the capacity to understand things that do not fit into our little spectrum of understanding. A wonderful story that is beautifully told.
