Here is my review of A Hidden Life – Saturday Review 17 – A Hidden Life – The Book of Job on Film


  1. Thanks! Do we need to be more selective as evangelicals about what causes we back? The pro-life cause sometimes feels eclipsed by SSA and gay marriage alarm bells. I jest not, it’s a serious question: would some urban evangelical churches get more upset about a gay bar being set up by their premises than an abortion clinic? Are there shades of “strain out a gnat but swallow a camel”? Abortion draws us the the Apostle’s Creed and human identity. We might see spiritual vigour and renewal if more churches made a bold stand on this topic.

  2. Thank you David for telling us about the film ‘A Hidden Life’. I had not heard about it before. I have managed to send for the DVD from America (making sure it’s the correct region for this country!).
    In the trailer of the film, I like the words, ‘If God gives us free will, we are responsible for what we do, for what we fail to do’. How very true that is. I see it in my own life. Time and again, I have often failed to do what I ought to do, in the past and still in the here and now. But with God’s help, through prayer, we can be made new, not just better.

    I am so looking forward to watching the film which looks wonderful and very moving. Thanks again.
