The very best biblical docu-movie ever made: The Gospel of John. The entire Gospel text narrated in sequence, no deviation, full representation of every verse in the Gospel according to John.

The persons portraying people of that time are Middle Eastern, no English except that of the narrator. Authentic imagery, thorough narration, deeply compelling and informative to mind and spirit.

A powerful and deeply scriptural based presentation. Continue reading
Bernard-Henri Lévy was a guest on Fareed Zakaria’s GPS show a few weeks ago. He is a regular on the show and his insights are compelling and deftly presented. I was intrigued by his summation of his recent book, The Genius of Judaism in which he offered the potential reader solid insights about people with an experience that span several millennia. I was intrigued by the prospect to understand more and so I took the journey. Continue reading
The last recession became a situation in which my career was all but wiped out, I wasted from place to place, and other descriptions I am pleased to gloss over today but are nonetheless noted in the prior blog posts.
