I got to meet Nicolas Cage, the director, and several others involved in the production. While I didn't have much to do with the creative effort, I felt honored to be included and consulted.

The major difference between this movie and the video efforts in 2000 is that it's bigger and better – bigger budget, better acting, just a more ambitious effort overall. If you liked the previous ones, you'll love this one.(less)

A certain artistic license has to be granted to make a movie work. There are some differences between the first two chapters of the book and this movie, sure, but they don't violate the integrity of the story or the message, and I'm pleased with the result. That's why I'm so excited about it and am endorsing it.(less)

I don’t make a habit of reading email during church, but as I was following the biblical text on my phone on Sunday, July 6, I was alerted to a message from Eva Marie Everson, a novelist from Florida. Okay, I peeked.
