Quality: * * * Acceptability: +4 WRITER: Jim Palmer PUBLISHER: Jim Palmer CONTENT: (BB, C) moral worldview with Christian inclinations; and, nothing objectionable. GENRE: Self-help; Informational INTENDED AUDIENCE: Would-be stunt persons & film buffs. REVIEWER: Dr. Theodore Baehr REVIEW: While many people think of Hollywood as a spiritually dark place, many of the stunt men and women are people of faith and values. As our friend Bob Yerkes used to say when he was teaching Circus of the Stars and pushing someone off a platform and into the abyss he will ask if they knew Jesus. Many of the stunt men not only know Jesus, but also pray in the midst of extreme adversity. That said, the book STUNT ADJUSTMENT is a wond...
 

 
Blessed To Be a Blessing
January 05, 2010

By the Rev. Canon Dr. Mark A. Pearson Many years ago my ministry was enhanced by reading a book called Blessed to Be a Blessing by United Methodist pastor the Rev. James K. Wagner (1980, Nashville: The Upper Room).  Although this book was specifically about having an intentional ministry of healing in one's church, I took it as a maxim for our work for Christ in all its fullness: we cannot be a blessing unless we were first blessed by God, AND once we're blessed by God we must be and take God's blessing to others. Otherwise, what?  Trying to minister in our own strength will lead nowhere.  We'll burn out and we'll not bear fruit.  At the Protestant Reformation Martin Luther, in his monumental hymn "A Mighty Fortress is Our God" ...

Restore Stephen Baldwin
January 01, 2010

Dr. Ted Baehr, publisher of Movieguide® has joined the ranks of many Christian leaders who are speaking out to endorse a web based movement, www.RestoreStephenBaldwin.org. Borrowing from the Book of Job, the movement points out that God restored Job by the “token gifts” of his friends. Actor Baldwin has suffered much persecution for his outspoken faith in Christ as well as a humiliating bankruptcy. The new movement hopes to do for Baldwin what others did for Job: to restore him financially and in doing so, bring much honor to the God that Baldwin serves. Baehr adds, “Please support him and restore Stephen Baldwin. Help us to get behind him because he’s done so much for others.” ...
 

 
Semi-Finalist In The Kairos Prize Competition Writes: God's Economy
December 29, 2009

By Skin Mead, Executive Producer of FINDING HOPE NOW How does a film get made in God's Economy, for God's Purpose? Not as you might think. I'm a person who has many strengths and tons of weaknesses, a person like you, who likes to have a certain amount of control over life and a feeling for where things are going. But that wasn't God's plan for me with the film FINDING HOPE NOW. About me. . . I have degrees in math, science, and business. Not English. Not writing. In school, I hated writing. As a matter of fact, I would do anything to avoid an essay test. Give me a good old multiple-guess test anytime. Yet, I felt a passion to write this story. A yearning inside of me that said this story can change a lot of lives. I felt God calling ...
 

 
Movieguide®'s Global Impact: A Worldwide Mission to Redeem the Culture Through the Mass Media
December 28, 2009

By Ted Baehr with Tom Snyder From the very beginning, our ministry of Movieguide®, dedicated to transforming the culture by redeeming the values of the mass media of entertaining according to biblical principles, has had a global impact. For example, within five years of starting to publish and broadcast Movieguide® in Atlanta, our subscribers, supporters and friends came from as far away as the state of Tasmania, a small island off the coast of Australia. As Don Stanley, who now lives in Israel, recalls when he was a senior executive with ABC (Australian Broadcasting Company): "With three kids growing up as teenagers in the early nineties, a big issue in our house was engaging culture - especially in the areas of movies and music...
 

 
New Movie ‘Creation' Tells History thru Evolutionary Eyes and Lies
December 25, 2009

By Ted Baehr, Jeff Holder, and Tom Snyder For years, the mass media has been trying to turn science against religion while trying to demonize anyone who believes in more traditional, and more biblical, forms of Christianity and Judaism. Such is the case with the new movie "Creation," which opens in two or more cities Christmas day, and wider on Jan. 22, 2010. Despite its title, "Creation" is not about God creating the Earth. Instead, it's the story of evolution's founding father, Charles Darwin, and his struggle to write the book that would "kill God." Moving forward and backward in time, the movie shows Darwin's Christian wife struggling with her husband's increasing lack of Christian faith. It also mocks the Christians who oppose ...
