Actress Jennifer Connelly weighed in on the controversy over "Noah," saying that the upcoming Darren Aronofsky film is true to the spirit of the biblical story. She also stressed that religious leaders who have seen the movie are supporting and embracing the project.

I've been all over the board about him. My emotions have ranged from anger to apathy to compassion. He's equal parts rational, cold and notorious. He's the Prodigal Son's older brother.
An early reading of the Prodigal's story prompted me to quietly whisper to myself, "I am so glad the Prodigal encountered his father first when he returned home, rather than his brother."
I know, as do you, that had he encountered his older brother first, the Prodigal would have never made it home. His brother would have rejected him and turned him back to the 'far country.' more >>
Despite criticism by some conservative groups like Answers in Genesis, the upcoming Christian film "God's Not Dead" has received high marks by Faith Driven Consumer, with the movie review site saying that the film leans toward a biblical worldview,

Some Christian scientific experts believe that the discovery of the "gravity wave," announced earlier this week by scientists working with a South Pole telescope called BICEP 2, provides confirmation for the biblical account of creation by supporting the theory of the "big bang."
"The Bible was the first to predict big bang cosmology," according to Hugh Ross, president and founder of Reasons to Believe, an Old Earth Creationist organization that believes Christianity and science are complementary.
In an interview with The Christian Post on Tuesday, Ross explained that the detection of gravity waves from the universe's rapid expansion, referred to as "inflation," shows that "when the universe was a trillionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second old, it expanded faster than the speed of light." more >>
