LOS ANGELES – "Ben-Hur" actress Nazanin Boniadi, who plays the leading lady in the Paramount Pictures and MGM reboot, says she is proud to be a part of a production that offers positive faith in trouble times like these.
"For me personally I'm an activist so I see a lot of turmoil and heartache in the world and tragedy. I think we've always had that throughout time but now I think more so, we need to have this message out there," Boniadi told The Christian Post at a recent screening.
"Ben-Hur" was executive produced by outspoken Hollywood Christian couple Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, and although it's not overtly Christian, the new version of the motion picture is laced with the message of Christ. more >>

Nine-year-old Lucy Chelton won the competition during the third season of the program that centered on cooking a snake-themed appetizer.
"When the young chefs must butcher and cook snakes in the appetizer round, will they be too squeamish to let their skills shine through? In the entree round, a dense oddball of a cake must be worked into lamb shoulder dishes," noted the Food Network. more >>
In his new book "The End of White Christian America," billed "quite possibly the most illuminating text for this election year," Robert P. Jones, founding CEO of the Public Religion Research Institute, says white Christian America is dead and the general election in November could be a referendum on it.
"I begin the book with an obituary for White Christian America, and I conclude the book with a eulogy. This construction is consistent with the book's stark title. My argument in the book is that we have already experienced the passing of White Christian America," Jones told The Washington Post in an interview with John Sides, an associate professor of political science at George Washington University who specializes in public opinion, voting, and American elections.
"While this claim is grounded in demographic changes, it is also supported by the fading power of major institutions, such as the National Council of Churches or the Christian Coalition of America. There are no indicators that the country will see the likes of White Christian America as a dominant cultural force again," he said. more >>
