National Geographic has offered a behind-the-scenes look at its upcoming dramatization of TV host Bill O'Reilly and historian Martin Dugard's best-selling book, Killing Jesus: A History.
"'Killing Jesus' is about a man, a real man, and I was very interested in making a film that would appeal to believers and nonbelievers," says Director Christopher Menaul in the three-minute clip.
The video features comments from the main cast as well, including Haaz Sleiman ("The Visitor"), the Lebanese and Muslim-raised actor who takes on the title role of Jesus. more >>
Dr. Tony Evans, senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship and president of The Urban Alternative, insists in a new book that blame for the social ills Americans are experiencing partly fall on the shoulders of Christians, who have compromised with the culture and helped marginalize God — therefore shutting out access to His transformational presence and power.
"America is in serious trouble," Evans writes in America: Turning a Nation to God. "From sea to shining sea we are witnessing the devolution of a nation."
Listing "family breakdowns to the immigration crisis to the abiding racial divide" as well as "the redefinition of marriage and the family, abortions on demand" as examples of the nation's "unraveling," Evans adds that "the American dream is quickly becoming the American nightmare" for those disillusioned with the country's direction. more >>

Author and Christian apologist Lee Strobel along with colleagues at Houston Baptist University announced this week that in response to an increasing tide of skepticism in the U.S. they are launching the Center for American Evangelism program and initiative.
"We are facing a crisis in America. Skepticism is rising. Too many young people are leaving the faith. Few Christians are able to effectively share Jesus with others," Strobel said in a statement released exclusively to The Christian Post.
