Book (aka Movie) of the Week

Since this is the week leading up to Easter, I've decided to watch the Passion of Christ in place of reading another book outside of Scripture. Each morning, Jennifer and I will watch 15 minutes of the film. We started this morning, and we'll finish on Easter morning. We prayed this morning that it would not be entertainment to us, but rather be a meditative experience for us with regards to the ugliness of our sin and beauty of God's love.

If you own a copy of the movie, I think it will be a great focus for meditation this week. Feel free to join along.

(By the way, last week's book, "The Godly Man's Picture" by Thomas Watson has been the best book I've read this year...apart from Scripture).
