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











Monday - One of the things that sticks out in this book is faith. Just as it took faith for Abraham to trust God for something he would never see, so did the Jespersens learn to put their trust in God, even when it seem hopeless. One of the more poignant parts of this book is found near the beginning, after Harvey Jespersen feels the call of God to minister to children. He follows this call and the leading of the Lord, but waits for many years before Bethany House finally comes into existance. He and Elsie could have given up any number of times, but instead they held onto the vision that God had given them. In the end God rewarded them in ways that cannot addequately be described.
