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.

SAVE MY CHILDREN, by Emily Wierenga











Sunday - This month CFRB tours SAVE MY CHILDREN, by Emily Wierenga. This is an account of the Jespersens and their faith and love for the Lord as they minister to needy children. It is stated to be a fictionalized account of this very true story, but for the life of me I can't figure out what she has fictionalized. In any event it is a moving story about children, their need to be loved and the people who dedicated their lives to doing just that. It is a collection of short accounts that together paint a most beautiful picture of God who loves us all. I hope you will read this book, even if it isn't in your favorite genre. It will touch you, challenge you and open your eyes to those around you in need. This is a book unlike any I have written, not my favorite, but one that touched my heart nonetheless.
