Movie review: ‘God’s Not Dead: A Light in Darkness’

The third installment in the “God’s Not Dead” series is a vast improvement over the first two, but this doesn’t mean it’s a good film, only that it’s a better film.

Movie review: ‘Paul, Apostle of Christ’

Reviewer Ted Giese calls it “a remarkable film” with “a strong presentation of forgiveness, grace and mercy.”
