The End of the World

Just saw the movie “Noah” last week. My brother-in-law observed, “Not bad if you’re into Biblical disaster flicks.” The acting and special effects were good; fidelity to the biblical text was not so good.  Nonetheless, the movie’s theme of new life coming out of death and destruction was faithful to the overall biblical message—and it […]
