Inspiring true story follows the epic life of Father Damien (Wenham), a legendary Belgian priest who dedicated his life (quite literally) to the care and spiritual guidance of a doomed Hawaiian leper colony during the late 1800s. Faced with appallingly daunting conditions–symptoms ignored, food stolen from the sick, the weak forced into slavery, diseased girls forced into prostitution–the priest supported himself through his sense of justice and his unwavering faith. A counterpart of other beneficent luminaries such as Mother Theresa and Gandhi, Damien`s story speaks of the triumph of the human and the indomitable force of one man`s will to do what is morally and spiritually right in a beautiful, alien world. Spectacular scenery and panoramic Hawaiian vistas add a particularly aesthetic pleasure to the story. (Description by Movie Roulette)

Here is an important chapter in the steps leading up to the Reformation. The history books make little mention of this Bohemian priest and scholar who lived 100 years before Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation. Yet, John Hus was convinced and taught openly that the Bible should be presented in the language of the people, that salvation comes by faith in Jesus Christ, and the Word of God is the final authority. He taught in the University of Prague and as a pastor, challenged the abuses of medieval Christendom.
For decades, Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution has been taught in classrooms as more than just a “theory” — it’s been taught and accepted by mainstream educators as fact. But now, new scientific evidence is emerging that places Darwin’s theory under closer scrutiny than ever before. These scientific critics of Darwin claim that many famous “icons” of evolution- including Darwin’s “Tree of Life”, the Galapagos Island finches and embryos that look remarkably similar — are based on outdated research and faulty logic. For anyone desiring to discover the evidence and weigh it independently, Icons of Evolution is essential and enlightening viewing. (Description by Marian Land)
