"Clash 4 Kids is dedicated to promoting books and movies to Christian children and their families that will encourage and uplift their faith. We regularly post reviews of books and movies from a Christian standpoint. As a way to connect with our audience, most of our reviewers are kids themselves! Clash 4 Kids was inspired by Clash Entertainment, Inc., a similar website geared toward Christian teenagers.

The name "Clash" comes from Ephesians 6:12, "For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places." NLT

By Phil Boatwright

I’m of an age when I remember people dressed up to go to a movie, or to take a plane trip, and especially to go to church. And during that age, congregations sang from hymnals rather than giant monitors. I miss those days, not because I fear change, but because these changes, and others in the Sunday worship service, seem to reflect a secular influence. A new movie spotlights this change.

The modern day story of the prodigal son.

In this modern day retelling of the timeless Prodigal Son Parable, Jacob is tired of living on the family farm and submitting to his father's rules. One day he demands an early inheritance from his father, who shockingly agrees to give it to him. So, he heads to the big city doing things his way without restraint. For a while, he does surprisingly well. He takes huge business risks and converts his small fortune into a big fortune, despite his extremely flamboyant lifestyle. Jake had it all: money, ladies, prestige. But he loses it all and finds himself eating out of dumpsters and living in a literal pig pen. He heads home, determined to work for his dad, who surprises him once again by running to him-but is it to kiss him or kill him?

The Christian faith finds its roots in deep tradition and tells compelling stories of salvation, hope, and restoration. The arts in history give us a glimpse into the hearts of those who were transformed by the same message we believe in today. One of these artforms is the hymn, which showcase beautiful marriages of poetry and melody, used in corporate gatherings. These hymns are eloquent and timeless. The goal of this project is to record and arrange versions of these hymns which can be used and enjoyed by our fellow congregations and Family members today.

Review: "The Keep" - Nintendo 3DS

Reviewed by RPG Master for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 77/100

I love it when companies look at the landscape of genres on a system and release something that there is not a lot of. The Keep is a first person dungeon crawler on the Nintendo 3DS. The Keep is also a downloadable only video game. Those two things are pretty unique. Yes I know the Etrian games are out there. The Keep has a more medieval feel to it though.

AN ACT OF FAITH #9 is the second half of the two-part "The Ark" storyline.

In the 1980s, there were two failed missions to find Noah's Ark. On the first mission, Professor Jack led the super-hero team, the Protectors. On the second mission, the Protectors went without Professor Jack. The second mission ended terribly. For decades, Professor Jack blamed himself for the failed missions. Now, in hopes to make amends, Professor Jack takes Nemish-Man, Crusader Girl, and Kid-Cockroach to Mount Ararat to retrieve Noah's Ark once and for all!

You know how we usually find mistakes made by the ESRB? Normally they missed descriptors that they could have caught if they would have spent five minutes with the game. I have lost track of how many times they rated a game with a lower rating than it actually deserved.

By Lindsay Williams

Christmas music has the power to transcend present circumstances and vast stretches of time to evoke poignant memories like nothing else, no matter the time of year or the temperature outside. Worship leader Kim Walker-Smith experienced this as she entered the studio to record her first holiday album, When Christmas Comes. The vocalist, best-known as the front woman for Jesus Culture Band, donned a tank top, shorts and flip flops most days to usher in the Christmas spirit in the middle of July. Still, despite the 115-degree heat, Kim admits the songs brought back a flood of childhood memories throughout the recording process. “I’m finding out it doesn’t matter what time of year it is, if you’re listening to these classic songs, it just brings out these special memories and really warms your heart, thinking about how special family is,” she says.

A Different Kind of Reading Experience...

Michael Vey continues to break all the rules of publishing. This #1 New York Times bestselling series by Richard Paul Evans doesn’t feature the darkness that the publishing world has been feeding our children: youth who hate or disregard their parents and disdain society (as if our kids need more dysfunctional life scripts). Michael Vey is a "good" kid. What does that mean? Well, to begin with, he is loyal, kind and he loves his parents. He is humble. In today's world of swagger, he's an oddity. The series is hopeful. It is not dystopian, it is not occult. Yes, it is sometimes scary and often exciting, but Michael believes in the best of humanity, that we can be good and that some things are worth fighting for, even if we don't personally profit from the results. In short, Michael is a hero.

Arguments Evolutionists should not make!

Ah, ‘Time is the hero’—really? No, there are many events that just will never happen in a time-and matter-finite universe, the origin of life, for example. The impossible does not become certain by adding time. Water does not flow uphill, no matter how much time is allowed. The origin of life and the origin of new DNA programming are akin to getting water to flow uphill; natural processes head in the wrong direction for them to create a coded information processing system as well as all the actual coded instructions.
