The Strangers

We watched The Strangers tonight. What a stupid movie. I was hoping that there might be some psychological thriller component to the movie. Nope. Just a senseless thriller. From that perspective, it was well executed -- the director made the movie tense from the very beginning and kept the tension strong the whole movie. But, in the end, it was just stupid.

Oh, well. That's what NetFlix is for -- I don't feel bad about getting the occasional dud.

I Got A Couple Of New BIbles

In the past couple of weeks, I've received a couple of new Bibles. I've spent some time with both of them, and am liking them both. I'll write more about them each in the next few days.

The first Bible is the TNIV Reference Bible that I won from the thislamp.com giveaway. It feels great in my hand and I really enjoyed teaching out of it this past Sunday. The second is a copy of 24/7: A One Year Chronological Bible that I received from Tyndale as part of their Blogger Review program. I've enjoyed reading it in a devotional setting.
