“The Nativity” (2006) is a perfect Christmas film for the whole family. It is an intimate look at the journey of this historical family from Nazareth to Bethlehem for Jesus’ birth. In an authentic biblical scenario, it incorporates themes of hope, faith, love and commitment as well as historical insight that is both biblical and political. It has become an annual tradition in our home.

Film Discussion: The Agony & the Ecstasy (Italy)
“The Agony and The Ecstasy” includes 3 of my favorite things: Michelangelo, Renaissance and Italy; this film has them all, and much more! Set in Florence and Rome, this in-depth drama of Michelangelo’s painting of the Sistine ceiling and his battle-of-wills with Pope Julius II is filled with history, drama and lots of great art.
