Should Tiger Woods Consider Christianity?
January 11, 2010

By Mike McManus Brit Hume, former Fox News Anchor, now a commentator, touched off a firestorm when he made some compassionate remarks about Tiger Woods on a Sunday Fox show: “Tiger Woods will recover as a golfer. Whether he can recover as a person I think is a very open question.  It is a tragic situation.  He has lost his family.  It is not clear to me whether he will have a relationship with his children. “The Tiger Woods who emerges once his news value dies out of this scandal – the extent to which he can recover seems to me to depend upon his faith. He has said he is a Buddhist. I don’t think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption that is offered by the Christian faith. “So my message to Tiger is, `T...

January 07, 2010

By Tracey L. Carson The doors of the Philadelphia Biblical University in Langhorne, Pennsylvania burst open a few weeks early this year as a windfall of over 280 aspiring Christian writers filled the hallowed halls.

All were thirsty for different dispositions of knowledge, seeking weaponry for their entrance onto the battlefield for a greater Christian presence within today's entertainment communications media. Under the direction of founder Marlene Bagnull, Litt.D., the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference began in 1983 as a one day event. Bagnull, along with a staff of 61 instructors, welcomed the multitude of enthusiastic beginner, intermediate, and advanced wo...

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 ...
