Friday Night at the Movies

posted by Scot McKnight

Kris and I aren’t big movie buffs, but many of you are. Since this blog is for all of us, I thought I’d follow up on the suggestion of one our readers and start something new: Friday Night at the Movies. This post, appearing Friday evenings, will be a review of a current movie (or an old movie if you prefer), and you are the reviewers.

Any thoughts? Any reviews? Send them our way.

I’m part of a Film Club that meets one Friday evening a month. I’ll try and send along a review of our upcoming film – do you want us to post it directly to the comboxes, or send to you by e-mail?

Hey Scot, I used to write on a media-review blog that I’ve now shut down. I would volunteer to write a review of movies like Nanking, God Grew Tired of Us, Joyeux Noel, and other similar powerful but not mainstream movies.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
