    here are a lot of reasons why people know the name Emilio Estevez. Some know him because his father is Martin Sheen and his brother is Charlie Sheen. Others know him for playing the “jock” in “The Breakfast Club.” Still others know him for his work playing coach Gordon Bombay in “The Mighty Ducks” series. Even others know him for the many other films that he's acted in or directed over the years. However, his new film "The Way" shows a different side of Estevez than many of us have seen before. Written and directed by the famous actor, the...

    Jesus Christ is considered the most important and central figure in all of history for many. Yet in her debut novel, Kristen Wolf turns the biblical portrayal of the Messiah on its head by portraying Jesus as a woman.

After she witnesses the brutal murder of a woman in her town, and her...

    WASHINGTON (CNS) -- "I've stopped using the word coincidence" to describe how the upcoming film "The Way" got made, said its writer-director-producer, Emilio Estevez. "It was providence. ... It was the divine." "The Way," which stars Estevez's father, Martin Sheen, tells the story of four Westerners walking the 500-mile pilgrimage route from the French Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Sheen, who joked during a Feb. 18 interview with Catholic News Service that "I did my own walking" in the movie without a stunt double's help, recalled the first time he tried to make the pilgrimage himself. "It was in...
  • Mistranslation in Matthew

    Your assertion that Matthew quoted from the Septuagint is the most repeated argument missionaries use in their attempt to explain away Matthew's stunning mistranslation of the Hebrew word alma. This well-worn response, however, raises far more problems than it answers. To begin with, your contention that "parthenos does mean virgin" is incorrect. The Greek word parthenos can mean either a young woman or a virgin; for this reason the Greek word parthenos can be found in the Septuagint referring to someone who is not a virgin. For example, in Genesis 34:2-4, Shechem raped Dinah, the daughter of the patriarch Jacob,...
