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.

LEAGUE OF SUPERHEROES, by Stephen, Leon Rice


Monday – Some of the great things that Stephen Rice does in LEAGUE OF SUPERHEROES is he creates some realistic characters, with some very enjoyable flaws. He has them unified in Christ, although from different churches and doctrines. He uses humor in ways I'd never thought you could use humor. He reaches beyond the possible to the probable in future technologies. Most of all, however, he enables you to see this. One of the great rules of writing is to "show, not tell". Steve does this in an awesome way. You can picture a group of teens trying to have a secret club away from their other peers and being interrupted by a kid sister. You can see the disbelief of these kids when introduced by a "girl" on the internet who knows more than they do. (How dare she!) You can see these adolescents bumbling around, as teens often do as they try to fit in, only here it is magnified with the introduction of supersuits. Action, adventure, humor, sorrow, disbelief, knowledge, faith, love and compassion all are acted out, seen and experienced, rather than explained to the reader. Not only that, but he does this with such skill that it is incredible.

Tomorrow we will continue to take a look at these incredible characters. I was supposed to put this preface up front and start today with the charcters, but I forgot to double check myself. Look around, as I have, and find the great posts on the other sites. And whatever you do, have fun. This may be a book tour, but we believe in having fun. We believe in laughter. If you haven't had your daily dose of laughter for the day I'd advise you to find something, perhaps the first chapter of his book, to lighten your spirit.


This is a Tag Team Tour. So if you want to learn more about this book, find out who is going to post today, or any day during this week, you have been "tagged". The buton links below are the places you can go to find these things out. Happy hunting. Oh, and if you end up in a site that has not yet posted, you might want to look around anyway. Some of these members have some really great sites and some fantastic things to say.






Now I'm sure you want to find out just where you can buy this fantastic book, so I'm pleased to help you out in that are. First though, you may want to check out Stephen Rice's site (button link below) and see what he's up to. Trust me, he's not telling you everything. I have grown to appreciate Steve in the short time I've known him. He can be brutally honest, but his compassion, as well as his humor, is practically legendary. Besides, if you want some of the background on the Techno-heroes and their geek counter parts, he's been posting that for over a week now. You'll get a great heads up on what is in his book just by visiting his site.


Now for further information and where to buy this wonderful book you can go to the source itself,
