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

Yolanda Adams: Discover a Life of Joy and Purpose

Yolanda Adams often sings about faith, love and forgiveness, but instead of belting out the gospel message in song for her latest release, she writes about it in her first book, Points of Power: Discover a Spirit-Filled Life of Joy and Purpose.

Grammy Award-winning gospel artist Adams encourages readers with spiritual truths and personal anecdotes, challenging them to take hold of the same contagious joy she discovered during a painful divorce and other experiences.

"As a Christian, I want more than ever to show others the power of God's love," she writes. "You don't do that by badgering people; you do it by being a good example."

Much of Adams' message is drawn from the Points of Power segment of her widely syndicated radio program The Yolanda Adams Morning Show. The freshman author discusses nearly 40 points that compel readers to overcome hardships, sadness, disappointment and other joy killers. read more
