The Holy Land Key (Ray Bently with Jennie Gillespie) was just released by Waterbrook Multnomah. The Holy Land Key examines little-known aspects of prophecy, including details revealed in the seven Feasts of the Lord, prophetic patterns discovered in the lunar cycle, glimpses of God’s future kingdom revealed in the stories of well-known figures from Scripture and more.
Heaven is for Real (Sony Pictures), the movie based on the NY Times best selling book, opened in theaters this month. Heaven is for Real brings to the screen the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son’s extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world. The film stars Academy Award® nominee and Emmy® award winning actor Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo and co-stars Kelly Reilly as Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum) claims to have visited Heaven during a near death experience. Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth … things he couldn’t possibly know. Todd and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event.
