Hello, and welcome to the (once again) monthly CTG Podcast.  This month’s offering is the Christian reboot of Left Behind (2014) starring Nicholas Cage.  In TV Corner we watch the Amazon original series “Hand of God.” Well, we watched part of it.  One episode was quite enough.  Also, remember almost exactly a year ago when I recorded a rant essay imploring you to not go to see the movie we are reviewing this month.  Mike and I have bravely jumped on the grenade; we watched it so you don’t have to.  But it’s fun to listen to us argue about who hates it more. Here’s some of the things we refer to along the way.

You will want to tune in for the next few months.  In anticipation of what is predicted to be the biggest release of the year (decade? all time?), we are going to do a whole series on the religious aspects of Star Wars. The next three episodes, which will be our own Star Wars trilogy, will first focus on the mythological aspects of Star Wars informed by the work of Joseph Campbell.  The December episode will look at the effects that Star Wars has had on religious beliefs in the world. Finally, we will give our review of the new film Star Wars: The Force Awakens in January.  So until next time, may the force be with you!
