After nearly two decades working in Hollywood, Ive found that the secular space did not hinder my spirituality but enhanced it. Ive learned valuable lessons from my industry and my dear friend, Dr. Ted Baehr, who has proven that even films can enrich our daily walk with God. Reel to Real: 45 Movie Devotions for Families is a groundbreaking book that references movies that inspire. Just like the many parables we turn to in times of emotional crisis, Dr. Ted Baehr has compiled films that reflect the Word of God, and this too deserves to be on your nightstand!

My dear friend Ted Baehr is like John the Baptist, "a voice crying in the wilderness"! Ive lived and worked in that wildernessthe entertainment worldfor over fifty years now, and it has become truly an environment of great accomplishment but lost purpose ... and lost souls. It is increasingly a wilderness" of immorality, greed, and secular idolatry. But, for many of those same years, Ted Baehr has been revealing the good and the bad, the positive and destructive, in movies and television, helping guide parents and their children through the glittering morass of a cinematic "Never, Never Land" that glamorizes decadence but can eat away the morals of the young. And, as he annually shows how family values entertainment has the best chance of profitability, his "Teddy Bear" awards are gratefully accepted by some of Hollywoods most successful writers, directors, producers, and stars. Hes making a serious difference, and convincing many in the entertainment world that good can be more profitable and more award worthy than bad. And now comes this amazing book, the result of Teds long study of the best and worst in films and TVand his simultaneous immersion in the eternal Word of God. As Jesus used parablesstories of contemporary lifeto teach everlasting truths, Ted Baehr is using contemporary films to illustrate and underscore vital lessons and moral guidance for young viewers! Every point is Scripture-based and every lesson obvious and undeniable. What an incredible asset for todays responsible parents! A personal example: When The Exorcist hit the screens, I took my young children to see it, hoping it would accurately depict real-life demonic activity in our day. And though it wasnt totally scriptural in all details, it so impacted my four young daughters that we prayed together as never before, not just then but through years to come. It made us realize that we are living in a spiritual battlefield, a literal war for our souls, and that belonging to God is our only way to navigate through the "wilderness" of modern life. Thank God for Ted Baehr, our valiant "voice crying in the wilderness"!

Ted Baehr has used his years of experience in the world of film and entertainment to point us to the Word of God. Kudos for highlighting biblical life-lessons that can be gleaned from movies!
- Alex Kendrick, writer, producer, director, and actor
Make no mistake about it, movies often influence our culture greatly, often in unbiblical ways. Therefore, showing powerful insights into the principles in Gods Word, with entertaining movies as illustrations, provides a bridge to help us and our children grow to be culture-wise and to redeem the mass media of entertainment. Therefore, I want to recommend Dr. Ted Baehrs Reel to Real.
