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.

ERETZEL, by Willam McGrath


CFRB welcomes you once again to their site for this month's Tag Team Tour. This month we tour ERETZEL, by William McGrath. A tag team tour means that something will be posted every day during the week of March 1st, but it's up to you to find those posts. To help you out we've listed a number of button links at the bottom of this post to help get you around. You may get to a site early and find them posting on something else, which is fine. Take a look around. You might just like what you see. You may even find that more than one site is posting on some days. If you're real lucky you'll stumble across both a review and an interview. The idea is to get you to do the searching. You'll be glad you did.

ERETZEL, by William McGrath - The Anakim. The seven sons of Anak, also known as the Anakim, are hard to overlook. These are sons of the Grigori, a class of angels that supposedly didn't side with God or with Satan during the revolt in which they and Satan's horde were cast out of Heaven. They are the giants the roam the earth, the last of the true giants, true sons of angels. Unlike their ancestors, such as Goliath and his brothers, these giants are followers of Yeshua, all except the eldest. As such you find them doing good works. Ambassador Immanuel and Emperor Antiochus, find them to be a particular nuisance, because they are doing things that the rulers of the lands promise, but never do. They fix homes, till farms and basically give aide to those in need. McGrath's dealing with the Anakim lends a special realism to his work of fantasy, in part because it is based upon truth. We get to know them, their differences, their different desires towards women, but most importantly their dedication to the oath they have taken to avenge the death of their father. They may have love for these women, but they will not take any to wife until they fulfill their oath. We learn their strengths and their weaknesses. It is throught them that we see ourselves more clearly.

I like the inclusion of these giant heroes. We learn much from them, things that are practical in our lives today. We don't have to be giants to be heroic, to be faithful to our word, to have faults. It is possible to see one's self as one of these giants, maybe not in physical stature, but in spiritual stature. For that reason this becomes an important part of the book. So many Biblical teachings are woven into the story through use of the Anakim. Let us be grateful they are there, and may we look for them in the world around us. For whoever speaks the Word of Truth and lives by that word is a true giant.
