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.

FireProof






FIREPROOF was put out by the same people who put out FACING THE GIANTS. While we start off with a firefighting crew coming back from a fire we quickly learn that this has to do more with marriage than with fires. The acting is pretty good, although some places it feels a little predictable or contrived. Maybe better direction would have made it better, but overall it was a great movie anyway.

The movie makes us face ourselves in the brash light of Truth and asks "Do you really want to change?" The "Love Dare" is something that a father gives to his son in the hopes that his marriage can be saved. Little by little God uses this tool to chisel away at those things in his life that are creating obstacles in his marriage. The thing is you can apply this to almost any relationship situation. Bottom line, if you don't have a good relationship with God through Jesus Christ there is little possibility with having any good, lasting relationship with anyone, because God is the source of love.

The real challenge is do you really love your friend, your partner, the person who lives next door to you? Do you? If you do, remember, you never leave your partner, not if you want to stay fireproof. Troubles come, but staying with your partner during the hard times is the measure of your love.

I give it a solid 4 star rating, but wouldn't go higher. For couples who want to strengthen their marriage, or for anyone who wants to build strong friendships, FIREPROOF is a great movie.

If you want to purchase Fireproof you can find it at the following places, as well as probably your Christian bookstore, Walmart and other stores:
