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.

Caprice Hokstad - Feature Author

There are a lot of really great people I've met over the years through The Christian Fiction Review Blog, but possibly none so energetic, complex and entertaining as Caprice Hokstad. Caprice has helped out with CFRB practically since her membership cleared. Folks who have read our book tours may remember those little buttons for the different CFRB Members. Caprice made them, and did a lot of the HTML as well. She's a great encourager too, which shouldn't come as a surprise, although she has one difficulty, to my knowledge. Caprice seems to find it difficult to accept encouragement...but I try anyway.

Caprice is author of The Duke's Handmaid and Nor Iron Bars a Cage, two excellent pieces of fantasy. I call it high fantasy even though you won't find any magicians working their spells or magical creatures. It is simply a book about a different society done with the flare and panache of any swashbuckling fantasy you've ever read.

I could say a whole lot more, but I can just picture this marvelous woman turning beet red about this point (either from embarrassment, or more likely with anger) so I'll hold off. I do want to provide a link where you can read a very insightful interview. Robynn Talbert gives a remarkable interview that I think you will all enjoy.
