A document linked to LifeWay Christian Resources suggests that the popular bookstore chain has dropped more than 150 authors and resources from its inventory. However, a representative for the nonprofit says LifeWay did not release the list that was made available online this week.
"Although LifeWay Christian Resources does not carry titles by most of the authors included on a list recently posted on the Internet — and has never carried most of them — this list was not released by LifeWay," Marty King, director of communications for the company, told The Christian Post on Thursday.
The document, titled "List of authors removed from Lifeway" was made available for download Wednesday on camerondobbins.org. In a blog post first published Wednesday, April 8, site owner Cameron Dobbins, wrote, "LifeWay sent out a company email to all employees in regards to their decision and an acquaintance of mine who works for LifeWay sent me the list of banned resources/authors." 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. We have all seen what happens to Christian, Bible-based stories when the Hollywood studios take control. They change the fundamental meaning of God's Word and make a mockery of the Christian faith. With the help of campaign supporters we won't let that happen to LEFT BEHIND 2." more >>

Hollywood takes fat shaming to a new level when a writer shared his disapproval of actress Amy Schumer playing a lead role in an upcoming romantic comedy. The problem, besides the fact that no one should make statements about another person's size, Schumer is a size 6. She seemed to take the criticism as many actors do and tweeted an almost-naked picture of herself. As women, we don't have to feel the need to prove ourselves to others. And as Christian women, we have the tools to fight against fat shaming (or any issue related to body image)—the Word of God.
Ladies, have you had a child? Do you notice that some things have changed? That which was once firm may on Wo be a little softer; for some, there are marks that will forever remind them of the nine months of carrying life. And I don't care what anyone says: your hips never return to their original position. Even if you haven't had the joy of carrying a child, you don't have to live long to be bombarded by what the world believes is the ideal body image. There are even websites dedicated to obtaining the ideal body shape. There are facial measurements for what is considered beautiful. And then there's our own sinful craving for these often unrealistic but definitely worldly measures. If we don't hit them, we don't measure up. So we become fearful and strive for this beauty. more >>
"Killing Jesus," a National Geographic channel miniseries based on the life and death of Jesus Christ that will debut on Sunday, chose to do most of its filming in Morocco rather than the expected location shoot in Israel.
"We wanted to create a believable Palestine of 2000 years ago," said director Chris Menaul to The Christian Post at a New York City special premiere event on March 23 . "What Morocco gave us was these amazing locations and faces. We used one village which had been a Jewish village up until 1974 when all the Jews got out at the time Yom Kippur was because they thought Africa wasn't the place to be anymore."
"It's still there and it was built hundreds of years ago exactly in the style of the villages that Christ lived in with mud bricks and courtyards, and very few people have moved into it." more >>
