(Full Title) The Unholy Bible: Hebrew Literature of the Time of David to the Beginnings of Greek Influence (1000-300 BC)
This is where so many stories began. The ugly duckling, the princess and the pea, the emperor’s new clothes… Stories that I grew up with. They are simple and yet they carry morals and meanings. Some that I agree with and some that I don’t. But I find it amazing that such a short story can carry so much meaning. I would love to master such in my own writing!

This is an excellent documentary that opens the door to consideration of some of the most basic christian teachings. This post really isn’t a review of the documentary, but rather a discussion of the implications and ideas presented within it. Read the rest of this entry
This was excellent. It explores both the social view and the science looking into the concept of death. It explores the meaning and definitions of death. It also takes a look at the way that these things have changed over the years as science has advanced and changed our perspective. Very engaging.
I loved this movie. Beautiful to watch. It made me feel as if I fell into the pages of the book. The story stayed true and followed the book while refining some of the ideas only touched upon briefly in the book. I liked that it had a powerful message, but it didn’t feel like it was beating me with it. Instead it seemed more like a story of 2 people who lost their way and were struggling to find it. The boy that has a good heart and sees only the girl he is crushing on; discovers that there are things greater in scope then that and steps outside the small place he had previously thought of as the world. The old man has been devoured by his sins and discovers that there is redemption and that in guiding the next generation we can prevent our mistakes from being repeated. Of course, it is also full of humor, bright colors and dramatic silliness. It was a pleasure to watch with my family.
