    • Christian Bale: One Man's Moses Is Another Man's Terrorist - The Daily Beast
      The problem with Bale’s attitude to Moses is that it’s anachronistically modern. He turned to an ancient collection of religious texts—texts build on the premise that human events are manipulated by supernatural forces—and decided to evaluate it using modern concepts: freedom fighter, terrorist, schizophrenia. In a world in which everyone believes in the supernatural, there’s nothing certifiable about talking to God. At least, no crazier than someone today trying to diagnose the psychological state of a character in a three thousand-year-old book.
    • Lights! Camera! Jesus! How Christians Are Building Their Own Hollywood

His Ontario-based production company, Stoney Lake Entertainment, is part of an emerging nexus of movie studios that are devoted to creating Christian films.
