In a recently released inspirational book designed to help people overcome personal tribulations and sorrows in life, former NFL quarterback Jeff Kemp asserts that people need to rejoice in their trials, pains, sufferings and griefs because they serve as opportunities to "run to Jesus" and "experience more of his love."
Kemp explains in his book, Facing The Blitz, which was released in March, that when life's "blitzes" hit, it is important that victims and sufferers not feel sorry for themselves. He said they should seek the comfort of God in order to change and mold them into better human beings that can then use their trying experiences to impact the lives of others.
The 55-year-old Kemp spent most of his 11-year NFL career as a backup quarterback waiting for an opportunity to prove that he could become a reliable and consistent starting quarterback at football's highest level. more >>

The producers behind 2014's "Left Behind" remake have announced that there will be a sequel to the Bible Apocalypse movie, with the story picking up after the Rapture.
"We are living in the last days and if the Rapture were to happen today, there are a lot of people who just aren't ready," Paul Lalonde, "Left Behind" producer and CEO of Cloud Ten Pictures, said in a press release shared with The Christian Post.
"This is why we need to complete the story as soon as possible beginning with LEFT BEHIND 2. But, if we want to keep control of our story, we will once again have to fund the movie independently.

With the help of campaign supporters we won't let that happen to LEFT BEHIND 2." more >>
