Jesus… Not A Religion, An Adventure
                     
J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, C. S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia, Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables and countless other stories; have two things in common: (1) They are stories of adventure, and (2) they have profound Christian overtones.  What's more, though we don't often know whether the screen writers did or did not intend it, we can find what many perceive as similar Christian overtones in countless movies such as The Matrix, Braveheart, Titanic, Gladiator, Spiderman III, and even the 1950 comedy Harvey staring Jimmy Stewart.
                 
As John Eldredge puts it while being interview by ChistianBook.com regarding his wonderful book “Epic”…
                                  
“My premise is this: you really can't write a story, a good story that holds together and speaks to the human heart in any deep way, unless you borrow from God's story. The nature of humanity and the things that we long for such as love, heroism and sacrifice, were put on our heart by God (see Ecclesiastes 3:11). You really can't write a good story without borrowing from God's story. So if you pay attention to any of the powerful, contemporary films such as Titanic, Braveheart, Gladiator, The Matrix, or The Lord of the Rings series, you realize that you can't create a gripping story without, consciously or unconsciously, telling God's story.”          - John Eldredge
                     
The reason story resonates so well with us, is that we were born into a story… we were born into “An Adventure”.  An Adventure more thrilling, more wondrous, and more dangerous than any story ever conceived by man.
