The recent TV mini-series on the History Channel, "The Bible," proved to be a big hit as it cleverly coincided with the preparation period before the Western celebration of Pascha. No less than 10 million people followed through each of the 5 episodes of what was supposed to be a sort of Reader's Digest version of the history contained in the sacred scriptures.
Ten million people is a lot of people to follow a Bible-based show, and I wondered how come, in a society that is as secularized and cross-cultural as ours, we can still find that many people to be still interested in what the old Bible has to say?

If a wizard came to your house and solemnly said, "I'm looking for someone to share in an adventure," what would you do?
Yep, me too. And Bilbo Baggins felt the same. Hence the name -- The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
A defiant daughter swipes at her mother with a sharp sword then uses it to slash her family’s cherished tapestry in two. The outraged mother clenches her teeth and retaliates by throwing her daughter’s beloved crossbow into a raging fireplace. Both women have now destroyed what is most precious to the other. The bow symbolized youthful strength and independence, while the tapestry embodied the elegant embroideries of family and tradition.
