Euan Murray
This was good to read in an article about a sports star: “Euan said: ‘It’s basically all or nothing, following Jesus. I don’t believe in pick ‘n’ mix Christianity.

Voyage of the Dawn Treader
This article gives cause for concern in regards to the next Narnia movie. It seems that once again they’ve decided to excise most of the Christian content from the film. This series certainly isn’t living up to the promise of the first film.


Veith on Avatar
