Movie Reviews

"To sit before God and know His peace"
Alejandra Vernon | Long Beach, California | 06/15/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Silence used to be the norm, but in the last 50 years it has become the exception; now we have to create a special time and place to experience silence...and "still the constant noise" that surrounds us. And if we want to grow in our walk with the Lord, it's crucial that we do so. For those who long with all their hearts for more than a Sunday only kind of Christianity, but don't know how quite to start, this DVD has some wonderful guidance, that will spark the light within you.

Jesus is the core and substance of this documentary, and His Word the source. I fail to comprehend the Pharisaic mentality that would find the teaching in this DVD to be heretical, but as Quaker author Richard Foster says, "It's much easier for people to debate the Bible than to submit to it." All the teachers, pastors, and authors interviewed for this documentary have wisdom to impart, making this film a good investment of your time.

"Be Still" is not only a good source for those seeking to learn on their own, but would also be an excellent tool for small study groups to use, and for pastors and Bible teachers as well. One of the 7 chapters of the DVD is on "Small Groups," and gives ideas on how to use contemplative prayer in a gathering of believers.

WARNING: The DVD has a very peculiar set-up. My only complaint of this documentary is that it does not have a "Play All" option, and one must keep the remote close at hand. The 1st chapter is approximately 55 minutes long, and has a long list of credits after it, making one think that "this is all there is," and stop the DVD. Wrong! There are about 40 minutes more in the subsequent 6 chapters.

"BE STILL is a continual joy! We've watched it several times. It delves deeply into the real meaning of prayer. Every follower of Jesus and every seeker of God should have a copy. My wife, Doris and I wept when it was finished. I encourage you to see this!"
Excellent encouragment for prayer.
Paul M. Dubuc | Columbus, OH USA | 01/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"So many Christians pray only to be heard by God. But prayer is more that that. The authors and speakers on this video program offer help toward a way of prayer that has been all but lost in our day. Prayer is also meant to change us, to let God speak to us through the reflective reading of the Bible. Please don't listen to well meaning Christians who criticize this film for its superficial resemblence to New Age spirituality. Their criticisms are off the mark. There is plenty of biblical and historical support for the practices discussed here. Don't miss out on something that will bring you closer to God. See the film for yourself and decide if this is helpful to you."
Incredible resource, great speakers

"My Sunday School class wanted to do a retreat that included a component about prayer. We looked at many resources and found this to be exactly what we needed. The speakers provide interesting and helpful insights that spark discussion and learning. There are plenty of how-to's on contemplative prayer, which is the focus of this DVD. It is not an encyclopedia of types of prayer: it takes one type of prayer and shows you how you can use it to bring new meaning to your life. One of the best resources I've ever seen."
