"I Was Wrong."

NEW!

A look at two hearts changed by abortion

It all started with Norma McCorvey in one of the most famous court cases of all time--Roe v. Wade. Norma went seeking an abortion and ended up legalizing it. As a result, she suffered a slow, emotional decline accompanied by suicidal attempts. Ironically, she never had the abortion but instead chose adoption. In 1977, 15-year-old Joyce Zounis also sought an abortion for her unwanted problem. Unsettling relief followed as six other children were aborted over the next eleven years. Thirty years later, Joyce not only grieves her seven baby boys, but their children and possible future generations. Now, touched by God's tender love, both women share their gripping stories to bring a powerful redemptive message of hope and forgiveness through Christ and a deeper understanding of how they are convinced abortion strikes at the heart and soul of America. 30 minutes. DOC DVD - #501089D, $19.99

Reflections on Psalm 23 for People with Cancer

Ken Curtis explores coping with advanced cancer from personal experience based on the inspiration of the 23rd Psalm.

Psalm 23 is one of the best-known and loved passages in the Bible. Its words of comfort and encouragement have been a support to many in difficult times. The clear and powerful sense of God's protective love comes forth so beautifully in this psalm. It is for this reason that so many people relate to it immediately when facing major personal challenges. At times of great fear and uncertainty, and cancer is one of the greatest, the simple yet powerful words of Psalm 23 can sustain us like few others can. Ken Curtis, founder and president of Vision Video and Christian History Institute, was diagnosed with advanced cancer and given little hope for survival. He pursued a combination of traditional and alternative medicine, undergirded by a strong spiritual dimension and prayer support team. Psalm 23 was a vital part of his spiritual component, and for this video Curtis went to Israel, home of David, writer of the Psalm, to be with the shepherds, travel "through the valley of the shadow of death," and explore and enjoy the healing powers of the green pastures and still waters. The resulting 13 meditations of about eight minutes each provide a combination of candid personal experience of what it means to battle cancer and some of the spiritual resources available from this time-honored Psalm. A co-production of Vision Video with EO-TV Holland, UCB-TV England and Nazareth Village (see their music CD below). DOC DVD - #501093D, $19.99 And Sheep May Safely Graze ­ Pastoral Suites from Nazareth Village is a music CD with gentle melodies of Jewish and Arabic musical traditions from the Middle East.

THE APOSTLE PAUL

Peter and Paul

Fr. Peter's Pick

This distinguished production, starring Anthony Hopkins and Robert Foxworth, captures the vitality, intensity, and humanity of two who were entrusted by Christ with history's greatest stewardship--carrying the Gospel to all the world. They faced violent opposition from without and constant turmoil from within.

WORLD HISTORY AND RELIGIONS

Christianity and Islam

Here is a subject where we dare not remain uninformed. Today, there are approximately seven million Muslims and more than 13,000 mosques in North America. Now that Muslims are our neighbors, how do we talk to them about Christ? Which beliefs do we share in common with Muslims and where do we differ from them? Is the Father of Jesus the God of Muhammad? Noted theologian Dr. Timothy George teams with award-winning producer-director T. N. Mohan to answer these and other basic questions in this visually rich four-part collection. The series avoids the angry condemnation of all Muslims on the one hand, and compromising Christian truthclaims on the other. Muslim views are stated fairly and objectively by Muslim scholars who appear in the series. The programs set forth basic and foundational differences between Christianity and Islam and the implications for how we understand God, Christ, and the meaning of salvation. Includes a study guide.

As a high school freshman, Lee Strobel became convinced that God did not exist. An atheistic worldview deeply influenced his academic years and early career as a journalist. Then, in 1980, his wife's conversion to Christianity led him on an intensive search for the truth about God. Not surprisingly, he began with science. Based upon a New York Times best-seller, The Case for a Creator is a remarkable film about Strobel's investigation and journey from spiritual skepticism to a profound faith in the God who has left His indelible signature upon every galaxy and living cell in the cosmos. 60 minutes + extras.
