    I work mostly with young people, 22 to 30 years of age, university students/graduates.

    Over the past three weeks around the Christmas and New Years holidays we viewed several films that are not the usual heavily promoted box office fare. These are all films with a distinctly Christian perspective, yet were not "preachy". And even though I might take issue with some points of understanding in the film, overall these were excellent in their content and the way it is presented; the acting is good. Music and other effects are also quite good.

    1. "Time Changer" -- about a professor of New Testament from the late 1800s who has a chance to go forward in time to see the effects of certain decisions taken in his day, how those decisions play out in today's world.

    2. "Another Perfect Stranger" -- how would Jesus speak to us today? If Jesus met you in the flesh, what would he say? How would he act? Would he be able to make sense to someone living today? A deeply moving film.

    3. "Facing the Giants" -- a slice of life about a football coach down in the Bible belt of Georgia, his personal life, his family life, his public life as a coach of young men. Another excellent view on the power of love for God and for one another.
