Major Christian-themed movies...

...are arriving at theatres near you, one after the other. The new wave started with "The Gospel of John", and then "The Passion of the Christ", and more recently, the first instalment of "The Chronicles of Narnia".

The latest one, which has already opened in the US, is a story that has been told in Christian circles for 50 years. In 1956, five missionaries were brutally murdered in the Ecuadorian jungle by members of the Waodani tribe they went to serve. And then something amazing happened; the killers became Christians. One of the slain martyrs, Jim Elliot, inspired a generation of missionaries with his words, "He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose."

Go see the movie when it opens; it is obviously good enough to have received measured praise from mainstream critics (for what that's worth) and more importantly, its message of God's love and redemption is realistically and validly rendered. There's lots to discuss in this movie. - Aargafella
