C.S. Lewis Reflections on Despair and Human Worth

I wish to present a few choice quotes from the great C.S. Lewis to meditate on this week as the ongoing debates about abortion continue… I felt the need to dig up a handful of these quotes when I saw the image above, the sad image of a young millennial woman who holds abortion inContinue reading “C.S. Lewis Reflections on Despair and Human Worth”

On Church Bells, Miracles, and Supernaturalism – Praying for the Veil to Lift

A few weeks I experienced something that I don’t know what to do with. I wouldn’t call it a miracle. I wouldn’t even call it particularly interesting or notable. It was just something curious that I experienced at church that, against my better judgment, I’ve hoped means something more than it likely does. I’ve beenContinue reading “On Church Bells, Miracles, and Supernaturalism – Praying for the Veil to Lift”

GUG Review: Church People

I’ve long held a fatwa against “Christian” movies on the grounds that they suck. That’s hardly a hot-take. Most people agree that they suck. I have mostly avoided the genre for years. I think the last two I can remember seeing are Heaven is for Real (2014) and Unplanned (2019). I did however try toContinue reading “GUG Review: Church People”

HUMMEL Review: Fatima (2020)

I should start this review out with a mild disclaimer: I’m not Catholic. I’m a practicing Evangelical Protestant who enjoys Catholic art but I am not confirmed and don’t personally share many Catholic core beliefs (heck I’m a pretty liberal Christian in many respects). That said, I’ve been curious to see the movie Fatima forContinue reading “HUMMEL Review: Fatima (2020)”

GUG Classic Review: The King of Kings

This past Easter, I watched through a dozen adaptations of the last of Christ to pick out which versions best captured his story and message. My understated favorite of the lot was Cecil B. Demille’s 1927 biopic King of Kings. The film was a beautiful if unorthodox adaptation of the life of Christ. Demille doesContinue reading “GUG Classic Review: The King of Kings”

GUG Review: Zack Snyder’s Justice League

It’s been a month now since Justice League premiered on HBO Max. I recently offered my thoughts on the film over at Geeks Under Grace! The movie was an enormous undertaking brought together by fans and a director’s desire to see his artistic vision respected! At the same time, it was also a long winded,Continue reading “GUG Review: Zack Snyder’s Justice League”

Merry Christmas from Cultural Revue – A Brief Story About the Birth of Christ and Family

There’s a great line in the movie Talladega Nights where in two children learn that their parents who are about to get divorced. Instead of being moarnful at their parents breaking up, the two children turn to one another and scream “TWO CHRISTMASES!” It’s a very dark joke but one I relate to as aContinue reading “Merry Christmas from Cultural Revue – A Brief Story About the Birth of Christ and Family”

Book Review – The Triumph of Christianity (2019)

There’s been an interesting awakening in the past four years in regards to the public dialog on religion. Back in 2015, it seemed like all boats were rowing in the same direction online and in real life as the New Atheist movement was counting it’s victories and bringing thousands upon thousands of millions into theContinue reading “Book Review – The Triumph of Christianity (2019)”

A Right Winger’s Introduction to Boethius’ the Consolation of Philosophy

Perhaps no man has influenced the great medieval writers quite as much as Saint Boethius. His great work of philosophy, the Consolation of Philosophy, inspired the likes of Dante and Chaucer. Dante himself went so far as to place Boethius within the Circle of the Sun and considered the Consolation to be a great sourceContinue reading “A Right Winger’s Introduction to Boethius’ the Consolation of Philosophy”

A Brief Thanksgiving Testimony: Despair, Hope, God and Gratitude in 2020

“…the more hopeless is the situation the more hopeful must be the man.” – Heretics by G.K. Chesterton I can’t just be speaking for myself saying that 2020 has been a hard year. I lost my day job in March and it never came back. I lost other better job opportunities to chance. I hadContinue reading “A Brief Thanksgiving Testimony: Despair, Hope, God and Gratitude in 2020”
