Book Review: "A Cry From Egypt" by Hope Auer

At this year's SHEM Convention in Springfield, Missouri, I had the privilege of meeting in person Hal and Melanie Young. Best known as the authors of Raising Real Men, these folks have also published two fiction books through their label, Great Waters Press. Both of these are stories about the Exodus written by a talented author and homeschool graduate named Hope Auer.

Book Review: A Different Kind Of Courage by Sarah Holman

Since I last posted, there has not been a lot of discernible progress on the writing front. In two months, I've barely added four thousand words to my work-in-progress. That doesn't seem like much, but then again, there have been similar time periods in which said work-in-progress shrank by this and larger amounts. The characters and plot have proven to be much more slippery than those…

Movie Review: The Redemption Of Henry Myers (plus a quick Elisha Press update)

It's been a bit quiet here on the blog for the last few months, but that's not because nothing is happening with Elisha Press. Indeed, the opposite is true. Just to write this post, I'm taking time away from my work-in-progress, which has been stuck just below 40,000 words for about two weeks. Plus there's another old manuscript in queue for editing, and also a "classic restoration" project still…

Movie Review: "Jericho: The Promise Fulfilled"

About four years ago, two homeschooled kids in North Carolina decided to make a movie. They wrote a script, prepared a plan, and sent out a casting call. Then, they gathered together all their Lego people, bricks, and accessories. You see, this was a brickfilm - a movie where the actors and sets are Lego toys animated frame-by-frame. The masterminds, Anthony and Jessica Rondina, had produced two…

"Courageous" Movie Review

What single demographic factor makes a young person ten times more likely to require drug rehab, five times more likely to commit suicide, and twenty times more likely to end up in jail? I'll give you a hint: it has nothing to do with skin color or economic status. The single factor is fatherlessness. With the breakdown of the family in America, few issues are larger or more important than…

"Remember" Movie Review

"No father shall know his child; no child shall know his father." This quote from Plato is the basis for Remember, a Christian sci-fi film from the Canadian father/son duo of Greg and Dallas Lammiman. In a dystopian society of 2050, children are confiscated at birth to be raised by the state, while the tyrannized citizenry is kept mellow with memory-suppressing drugs. Regime enforcer Captain…
