Truth time: I hardly ever use a physical Bible. Nearly all of my devotional reading and studying is done on my computer, smartphone, or tablet. I use a physical Bible when I occasionally teach at church and pull one out when I don’t want to have a screen in my face.
When I use a physical Bible, it is a multi-sensory experience. The scent and texture of the material, combined with the sounds of turning pages and seeing the words help to emboss what I’m reading into my heart and mind. Nearly all of my senses are engaged when I use a physical Bible rather than a virtual one and each Bible that I own provides its own unique experience.
Movies have been used for years as a way to reach people with the gospel. However, in some countries, unapproved religious content isn’t permitted.
Allegories like The Pilgrim’s Progress can subvert the censors in countries where preaching the Gospel is prohibited and give missionaries tools to share the love of Christ with people who desperately need it.
About Pilgrim’s Progress
The Pilgrim’s Progress has been translated into over 200 languages, has never been out of print and has sold over 200 million copies – more copies than any Christian book, next to the Bible. Written in 1678 by John Bunyan while in prison for holding religious services, The Pilgrim’s Progress is often cited as the greatest allegory ever written.
Healed by Grace 2 is a family-friendly drama that follows the typical formula for Christian films and leaves room for a third film.
Healed By Grace 2: Ten Days of Grace is the story of a girl who loves horses and how her dream unites and knits her family closer than ever before.
Fourteen-year-old Jessie Fuller (Kennedy Martin) is obsessed with horses, and pleads with her parents for the ultimate birthday present: a horse of her very own. While her father John (David Matthew Weese) considers it, her mother Brandy (Stacy Munsie) adamantly refuses time after time.
After discovering signs of Brandy’s breast cancer, John persuades his wife to send Jessie to a summer camp, but discreetly takes his daughter to a horse ranch instead. The only problem is that the owner of the horses, Gauff (Larry Bower), is Brandy’s negligent father.
Jessie is having the time of her life, becoming fast friends with Riley (Natalie Weese), the stable hand, and learning to ride Grace, a beautiful, pleasantly compliant horse. The real tension begins when father, mother, and daughter discover the secrets everyone else has been hiding.
