Flotsam & Jetsam (5/12)

Weekly Dissections – The recently launched movie review blog Film Dissectors is doing quite well so far. Click here for Eric’s review of Jurrassic Park (1993), here for Santiago’s review of Tron: Legacy (2010), and here for my review of The Road (2009).

Behind-the-Scenes at CC – E.E. gives us an insightful glimpse into the goings-on at CC.

Finding Heaven and Hell in Walmart – From Scott Lamb of WORLD: “Christians must not miss taking note of and acting upon this very simple leading cultural indicator: People really want to know what happens after death.”

Fighting Over the Rare Jewel – My brother has good taste in books, I’ll have you know.

Brothers Having Fun – Um, okay. I’m officialy weirded out now.

Movie Review: Thor – From Ethan Hansen: “I’ll admit I was skeptical about Kenneth Branagh taking the reins of a superhero flick, but his experience as director and star of the film versions of several Shakespearian (and other) classics seems to have given him just the edge he needed to turn Thor into the best film it could be.”

Book Giveaway – For the months of May, Persis is hosting a giveaway of two copies of The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment by Jeremiah Burroughs.

Jesus Died! – It’s long, but trust me, it’s worth every minute. (HT Mike)

Ink Sketches – Very neat.

“Many of our people are, without knowing it, Christian heathen, and demand as much missionary effort as the heathen in foreign lands.” Booker T. Washington

  1. I’m looking forward to the reviews on Film Dissectors. It’s easy to miss subtle, indoctrinating world views if all we focus on are counting the number of objectionable incidents in a movie.

    Thanks for linking to my giveaway.

    1. You’re right. I think many Christians forget that the worldview of a film can be just as dangerous as the content. When the TV is turned on, people tend to turn their brains off. Instead of engaging what’s in front of them, they sit back and settle for a passive experience.

      You’re very welcome!
