    The Key Bible Verse That Directly Impacts How These Hollywood Filmmakers Produce Movies Listen Now Aug. 28, 2015 11:36am Billy Hallowell The Kendrick brothers were among the first filmmakers to carve out a coveted space in the Christian movie world, producing well-known faith films like “Flywheel,” “Courageous,” “Fireproof” and “Facing the Giants.” And now Alex and Stephen Kendrick are back with “War Room,” a feature film that they say will teach audiences about the power of “prayer and repentance,” while also showing “ people how to fight in prayer.” The brothers believe that part of their success has been rooted in the fact that they spend a great deal of time between films — which, to date, have all advanced biblical...

    By Annelie on 02 July 2015 in with No Comments

    Reputable sources for movie reviews for parents, guardians, community leaders   June 30, 2015 10:57 AM MST Today it is more critical than ever that parents, guardians, and those in loco parentis carefully study reviews of movies for children and youths that address age-appropriateness before choosing what films the children under their supervision may see.

Fortunately, there are more and more redemptive, appropriate family movies available. However, both appropriate and inappropriate “family” movies can be rated as PG or PG-13, which both cover a broad continuum of movies. The PG that stands for Parental Guidance...

  • What’s The Best Entertainment for Christians?

    By Annelie on 12 June 2015 in with No Comments

    What’s The Best Entertainment for Christians? By Lovemore Chikova June 11, 2015 I have often heard debates and sometimes participated in arguments on what type of entertainment is suitable for Christians.In one such debate, there was a young man who sounded so convinced that Christian life is boring because of lack of entertainment. Others went to the extent of asking: “Do Christians really need entertainment, what for?” But the truth is that Christians, just like any other people, need entertainment, and lots of it for that matter.   What makes people differ on the subject is because of their definition of entertainment and how suitable for Christians who are rooted in the principles of God. But being a Christian...
