The popular king of horror stories, Stephen King, told NPR in an interview published Tuesday that he believes in God and intelligent design, and shared about his personal faith experience.
"If you say, 'Well, OK, I don't believe in God. There's no evidence of God,' then you're missing the stars in the sky and you're missing the sunrises and sunsets and you're missing the fact that the bees pollinate all these crops and keep us alive and the way that everything seems to work together," said the author of The Shining, The Green Mile, and Dreamcatcher, which were all adapted into full-length motion pictures.
The cosmos, he tells NPR, is "built in a way that to me suggests intelligent design. more >>

Meagan Good, the 31-year-old Christian actress, recently revealed that God is the reason that she decided to pursue acting full time.
Good, the wife of preacher and Hollywood executive DeVon Franklin, recently played the lead role in the NBC series "Deception" and is gearing up to star in the comedic film "Anchorman 2." However, the actress made it clear that it wasn't always easy sticking with her craft.
"I grew up in Canyon Country, Calif. It's kind of small townish, 30 to 40 minutes outside of Hollywood," Good told Camloot.com recently. "And it was like 'oh you're not pretty enough, you're not tall enough, you're not light enough, you're not dark enough, you're not talented enough. All of those things." more >>
Actress Alley Mills, perhaps best known for her role as Norma Arnold, the mother in the coming-of-age TV series "The Wonder Years," is unashamed to talk about Jesus Christ. However, while she was still a Buddhist working in Hollywood, she was more concerned about what people thought about her than she does now, she told The Christian Post in an exclusive interview.
"This town is driven by ego," said Mills, who currently plays Pamela Douglas in the soap, "The Bold and the Beautiful." She adds, "The more confidence you have when walking into a room, which is really about ego – that, much more than the depth of your heart, is what gets you a job." The question is always, "Can you hold your own in a room?"
Mills said that she had good survival skills as an actress before becoming a follower of Jesus 15 years ago, but that her priorities are much different now. She gives her Christian testimony in church and has talked about it in Bible study, but has never spoken to the press about her journey of faith prior to her interview with CP. more >>

They were given ten days to prepare, including writing, casting, scheduling and rehearsals before the 168 hours of filming.
"This is the week our filmmakers put the rubber to the road," said 168 Film Project founder and director John David Ware.
