Good Things Come in Threes . . . even Movies!


I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes because I've just watched the trailer for Francine Rivers's THE LAST SIN EATER. Wow.


You can find trailers for three great movies produced by Fox Faith here: http://foxfaithmovies.com/.


For a long time, Christians have complained that typical Hollywood movies either ignore, mock, or deride our faith. It's time for us to put our money where our mouths have been; it's time for us to support these films. When they come out in your area, find them and go see them. Yes, they'll come out on DVD, but Hollywood pays a lot of attention to box office, especially opening weekend.


My friend Rene Gutterson wrote a novel based on the screenpay for THE ULTIMATE GIFT, so be sure to look for that book, too. And I hear this is to be James Gardner's last movie--he's retiring after this.


Enjoy! and join me in supporting these films!
Tomorrow: Book of the Month begins again! February's book: THE JUSTICE.

And they do a beautiful job presenting the theme of redemption (it'll bring tears to you eyes). The way the movie presents it is so beautiful and simple. I came away from watching the film thinking, "This is the way the Gospel should be presented."

Not hit you over the head or judgmental, but full of love.

The Last Sin Eater was a feast for the eyes and heart. Definately a two hankie-movie.

Is there someone you're sharing with? Sin Eater is a perfect movie to treat them to.

The only discouraging thing was, like the movie Thr3e, there were less than 10 people in the theater.

We need to support these thoughtful and faith-driven films, people!
