Sister Duo Tal & Acacia Debut 'Wake Me'

Tal & Acacia have been working on their music for several years and are now releasing their debut album, Wake Me. Even though the process took longer than they anticipated, they see God's hand in all of it.

"We came to Nashville five years ago expecting to get on the road and share the gospel," Acacia says. "God's timing is so much better than our own, but it was not in our cookie-cutter mentality."

Tal & Acacia (pictured left to right) want their music to bring people closer to Christ, and their songs have specific messages that relate to real life. Acacia explains that "Garbage In Garbage Out" is a call to purity. "We struggle each day. ... There's so much temptation in this world to just watch anything, hear anything, say anything. ... That song convicts me every day." read more

Hearts of Saints: 'Four Guys Who Love Jesus'

L.J. Granstaff, Craig Felker, Jason Killebrew and Joel Purdy (pictured left to right) have been worshiping together for 4.5 years and release their first studio album as Hearts of Saints on Jan. 26. Lead singer Felker says the group changed its name from Special D to Hearts of Saints based on Philemon 1:7, in which Paul writes to Philemon: "I am encouraged by your kindness and faith because you've refreshed the hearts of the saints."


He says this verse is their mission statement. "We are four guys who love Jesus, and so everything we're going to do in life, whether it be the way we live, [our] music, we want to be His light. We want to be transparent. And these songs ... this music that we play is all about Him and about hope." read more

The Book of Eli

Warner Bros. | Starring Denzel Washington, Mila Kunis, Gary Oldman, Malcolm McDowell, Michal Gambon, Jennifer Beals | Rated R

Denzel Washington has long-since convinced movie audiences that onscreen he's one of the baddest, most icy-hearted tough guys to roam the borderline between good and evil in Hollywood morality tales.

None are as "bad" (in the "first-rate" sense) at being vengeful as his Creasy in Man on Fire (2004) or as good at being cold and unfeeling as his Alonzo Harris in Training Day (2001). read more
