New Material!

So now that I have posted my review of the Chronological Study Guide to the Bible (look down a couple of posts), I was able to choose a new item to review for the program. For those who don't know about the program, it's run by the publisher Thomas Nelson. In exchange for an honest assessment of the material I request and posting it on my blog and a consumer website (i.e. Amazon), I get to keep the item. After reviewing two books (and taking forever to read them and write the reviews), I was excited to have the opportunity to do something different when I logged into BookSneeze and saw some DVDs on the list.

So for my next review, I will be watching "The Least Among You"!

I will admit that one reason this one won out over the other DVD (no longer available and I don't remember it's name) is that Lauren Holly is in it. For those who don't watch or don't remember, she played the director and Gibbs' former partner, Jenny, on the TV show "NCIS" for several seasons before they killed her character off. Here's a synopsis of the movie as provided by

"Leaders are not chosen, they are called. Inspired by a true story.
Arrested in the 1965 Watts riots, Richard Kelly (Cedric Sanders) must serve probation at an all-white seminary. Although encouraged to break racial boundaries by its president Alan Beckett (William Devane), the school wants black followers not leaders. Even former missionary, Kate Allison (Lauren Holly), initially rejects Richard. A prison sentence looming, Richard meets Samuel Benton (Louis Gossett, Jr.) -- 'the gardener in the basement.' As Samuel guides Richard through his many trials, Richard must choose between his dreams and his destiny."

So there you have it! :) My first DVD review will be underway shortly! It arrived in the mail earlier this week and I'm hoping to have it watched before the end of the weekend. Not sure if I'll write the review right away or watch it a second time before writing it, but definitely hoping to have this review done much sooner than I've had my book reviews done! I hate that it's taken me months after I've gotten the books to write the reviews so definitely hoping this one is faster.
