A New Kind of Christianity: Ten questions that are transforming the faith
A New Kind of Christianity: Ten questions that are transforming the faith
by Brian D. Mclaren
Edition: Paperback

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Christianity at all, 2 April 2011
The errors, heresies, eisigesis and outright Bible twisting that McLaren engages in while putting forward his beliefs are breathtaking to behold and any careful reader of the scriptures will easily see that McLaren has long ago abandoned the historic Christian faith and is instead a member of a postmodern liberal heretical cult with christian-ish terminology which attacks, impugns and denies the authority and inerrancy of scripture and the Biblical gospel itself.

McLaren's strategy is very easy to spot. His goal is to drive a wedge between Jesus and Paul in order to create the impression that each had a different `gospel' that they were preaching. Since Jesus is greater than Paul, people will then ignore, impugn and belittle the Gospel of salvation by grace alone through faith alone by Christ's work alone that Paul taught through the proclamation of repentance and the forgiveness of sins in Jesus' Name and instead adopt McLaren's new and novel gospel that is never explicitly taught by either Jesus, Paul or any of the Apostles but is instead a postmodern liberalized gospel.

By pitting Jesus against Paul, Brian McLaren is rejecting the theological interpretation of Jesus' life, death and resurrection recorded for us by Paul through the direct inspiration of the Holy Spirit. By silencing Paul, McLaren is instead trying to smuggle in his own false gospel.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Lake House, 21 Jan. 2011
This review is from: The Lake House [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
An unusual romance between two people divided by time. I wouldn't say that it is a great film, but it is good and worth a look.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not so bad after all, 27 Dec. 2010
I had second thoughts about this film while watching it with my children. The flaws are obvious: Jar Jar Binks and lack of menace with the exception of Darth Maul.

However, for younger children the weaknesses are actually a plus. The CGI characters which annoy adults are pleasing to the under 10s so I would rate the film in the following way:

As a film for children: 4-5 stars
As a film for adults: 3 stars

Best documentary since 'Super Size Me'. Ben Stein does a great job with what is a very divisive issue.


Doctor Who Hornets' Nest 1: The Stuff Of Nightmares (BBC Audio)
Doctor Who Hornets' Nest 1: The Stuff Of Nightmares (BBC Audio)
by Paul Magrs
Edition: Audio CD
Price: £9.98

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressed!, 20 Aug. 2010
I bought 'The Stuff of Nightmares' despite mixed reviews because it was the return of Tom Baker...and that seemed a good enough reason!

I like audio books, although I've only heard a few Dr Who ones (from Big Finish) and was really pleased with this. Tom brings a certain atmosphere to Doctor Who of mystery and strangeness. It was great to have him back and also Richard Franklin as Mike Yeats who sets up the story wonderfully in a Holmes and Watson kind of way.

Another reviewer recommended turning off the lights and listening with a glass of red wine to really appreciate it - I imagine that would be a great way too. It is not a frenetic action packed story but it is good - a bit like Frankenstein with animals!

If you were a kid in the 70s you'll probably appreciate it more and like me think that this is THE return of Doctor Who (never did seem the same without Tom - an age thing I suppose).

Well I hope there will be plenty more, if there are I'm sure that the quality will only increase.

4 Stars for the story, 5 Stars for Tom.

1.0 out of 5 stars Prosperity?, 16 Aug. 2010
Creflo Dollar is one of the biggest proponents of the heretical 'prosperity' gospel, which is actually not the christian gospel at all. I'd recommend that people do a little research before buying his books.

It's hard to imagine how the 8 steps to 'the life you want' would have helped the Apostle Paul and the majority of the other apostles who were martyred.
