Tomorrow and The Day After Tomorrow

As weather forecasters are warning of a “polar vortex” set to bring record low temperatures in many areas, is anyone besides me thinking back to the apocalyptic movie “The Day After Tomorrow,” which envisaged global warming disrupting weather patterns, leading to a new ice age? The movie's scenario is obviously ridiculously extreme, but it is [Read More...]

A Polite Bribe (and Send Me Father)

Larry Hurtado blogged about the NYC premier of Robert Orlando’s movie A Polite Bribe, and Mark Goodacre mentioned that the movie will also be coming to his area. So what can I share?

Doctor Who: The End of Time vs. The Day of the Doctor

I saw “The Day of the Doctor” twice over the past few days, once on the small screen and once in a movie theater in 3D. It was definitely worth the extra effort to see the latter. The 3D aspect was cool, as was the chance to focus in on detail and catch a few [Read More...]

Another Polite Bribe

I had the chance to finish watching the documentary A Polite Bribe, which I blogged about briefly on a previous occasion, and so now want to say more about it. I honestly cannot think of another single documentary film about the Bible which has such a wide array of the very best and best-known scholars [Read More...]

A Polite Bribe

I was asked to review the forthcoming documentary movie, A Polite Bribe, about the apostle Paul’s “offering” to the Jerusalem church from the Gentile churches he established.
