Movie-loving ministers sit down to review popular films and discuss their value, not only as art, but as vehicles for spiritual themes and timeless truths.
I feel it in my fingers...it's time for another RevView!
In this episode, Paul and Ben close out the Advent season with a more modern holiday classic from across the pond, Love Actually. Join them as they search for God in the film's interwoven narratives reflecting love at Christmas. Could there be a more appropriate theme for the season?!
Fricka, Fracka, Fracka, Frick!
Kevin McAlister is home alone for Christmas, but that doesn't mean God isn't there! Join Paul and Ben as they search for the holy in this holiday classic and explore a wealth of spiritual themes, as well as the painful science of an iron hitting maximum velocity on its way to your face.
Enjoy the show, and keep the change, ya filthy animal!
A Christmas Story
We TRIPLE DOG DARE you to join us in searching for God in the beloved 1983 Christmas classic, A Christmas Story.
In this episode, the RevViewers mine Paul's favorite Christmas movie of all time for a wealth of spiritual truths, including how Ralphie models childlike faith and how maybe, just maybe, this film is so powerful because its structure reflects that of the gospels, themselves! If that isn't reason enough to listen, you can also hear about Paul's most embarrassing triple dog dare and the time Ben "pulled a Schwartz" on his buddy, Edward.
This episode brought to you by Ovaltine.

So drive on up in the RV, bring your jelly of the month, and join these superfans as they compare Cousin Eddie and John the Baptist, ponder Clark Griswold's fitness as a patriarch for the faith, and have fun turning the film's classic one-liners into sermons in a new game called, "The Gospel According to Christmas Vacation."
