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.

Secrets of Jonathan Sperry

For some The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry may seem a bit bland. Following the lives of 3 young boys in the Summer of 1970, the romantic attraction one of them feels, and their encounter with a gentle old man who had compassion, wisdom and kindness like they've never seen before turns that Summer into a Summer they would never forget. It was the Summer they grew up, spiritually more than anything.

Through word and example Jonathan teaches the boys, and those who follow, about the importance of the Bible, the love of Jesus and the Fatherhood of God. It is a life so dramatic that the main character, the one young boy "in like" with a girl rewrites his letter to the girl he wants to date. From mowing lawns to eating pizza and struggling against the town bullies this is a story that is uniquely timeless, gentle and at the same time powerful. I give it, without reserve a full 5 star rating.
