About 250 Great Movies for Latter-Day Families
Finding wholesome, uplifting movies can be a daunting task---especially
when Hollywood s values are so far from the Church's. 250 Great Movies
for Latter-day Families offers a broad selection of edifying options for
your family's next movie night. With content reviews, gospel discussion
guides, and indexes by genre and gospel topics, this guide is sure to
have something for everyone.
My thoughts on 250 Great Movies for Latter-Day Families
Jonathan Decker does a great job giving the reader the synopsis for each movie, without giving away the storyline. He then lists any areas of concern that the movie may contain, such as foul language, sexuality, etc. My favorite part is the messages to discuss sections, which include scriptures and quotes from General Authorities of The Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints. Having said that, I highly recommend this book to all families, of any religious persuasion (or none at all), that are looking for wholesome entertainment the whole family can enjoy. With 250 movies, that is almost 5 years worth of weekly movie nights! If you are not LDS (latter-day saint), you can still discuss the messages that are suggested, you just may want to look up related scriptures and quotes that are more closely tied to your own beliefs. Of course, you can also use the LDS scriptures and quotes as well. Feel free to let me know if you are interested in a free copy of The Book of Mormon ;)
