The truth is like a lion, just turn it loose and it will defend itself.

– Augustine of Hippo

Hollywood is at it again. They are continuously mocking God and His Word only to show the American people how dead set they are against God and His rule. You see friends, Hollywood is offended by “The Rock of Offense” that exposes them for who they are; and because of this, they then attempt to manipulate scripture by giving America their twisted version of the patriarch “Noah” (that looks just like them). To prove my point, self avowed atheist and director Daren Aronofsky said that his movie Noah is the “least biblical, biblical film” (Psalm 14:1).

The long-awaited movie Noah will be out in theaters this evening. As a Christian and a creation advocate and reporter, this correspondent recommends you give this movie a pass.

Books: Curtis, Michael. Should Israel Exist? A Sovereign Nation Under Attack by the International Community. Noble, OK: Balfour Books, April, 2012. ISBN 978-1-933267-30-2.

Americans know too little about Israel to decide, or vote, intelligently on Middle East policy, or for politicians who promise to solve the Middle East’s problems. They need a primer, something to sort out fact from fiction and truth from lies, and to put the history of Israel, all 3500 years of it, into proper perspective. Michael Curtis’ new book, Should Israel Exist?, does this.
