If we want to actually appreciate, care and love creation and each other, then a reworking of our eschatology is in order. This is one of the main themes of N. Wright's book entitled: Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church, which reminds us that we in the Church have, for long time now, forgotten what the Bible actually teaches about heaven, hell, and the resurrection.
Because a clear understanding of such theological themes as he said would ultimately change our view of worship, Scripture, prayer, justice, mission, beauty, and everything else. Because when we came to faith in Christ, we must remember that we entered a whole new world that was started by the resurrection of Jesus and will be completed when he returns. Our job is to live in that world. Wright is a British New Testament scholar whom Christianity Today has described as one of the top five theologians in the world today.
After serving three years as the canon theologian of Westminster Abbey, Wright became the Bishop of Durham in — the fourth highest ranking position of authority in the Church of England. Although he is quite unpopular among evangelicals Bishop Wright is one of those contemporary theologians that I admire for his honest self-criticism of present day Christendom as well as for his dry wit and God-given skill to articulate the same issues within the Christian faith that I myself am also struggling with.

However, the scientists say "We need proof that we can put under our microscopes".
I think it took a lot of courage for Hollywood to make the "Oh God" series and I thank them for it. George Burns and John Denver were wonderful in the original.
It was one of the first movies that I saw as a kid and I couldn't think of a better one. George took the role of God very seriously, he even consulted with Jimmy Stewart and Orson Welles before he played it can you believe that? He asked them how you would play God Orson Welles told him "I would play him sitting down". This is a wonderful sequel. You might ask why God would come down to earth again, well when he did before he made the studio so much money thats why? A young actress with only one screen name Louanne takes John Denver's place in the film and she does a wonderful job.
She was such a good little actress that I always wondered what happened to her. I'll bet she and George had a ball making this film, it shows in the finished product and there is wonderful "chemistry" between them. It kind of chilled me when they thought the little girl was crazy for talking to God and wanted to put her in an insane asylum.
It chilled me and it also made me very angry at a society that is hostile towards religion and God's word. It is almost as if we live in a world that glorifies evil and condemns good. This is a film that is very rare indeed because it is one with a message that makes you think long after the final credits and it is due to George Burn's wonderful performance. This man was an American treasure. What really amazes me is that he didn't act in the traditional sense until he was almost 80 years old and made The Sunshine Boys.
As far as I am concerned, all acting students should watch his work in that film and in the Oh God series. They will see a master at work. This is a rare sequel indeed, it is as fine as the original. It will leave you with a sore belly from laughing, but also with a slight lump in your throat. If you are looking for "miracles," look no further than the fact that Hollywood managed to turn a superb, one-of-a-kind, hit film OH GOD into a 3-picture franchise before it sagged to the ground under its own weight and melted.
OH GOD the original is one of my favorite all time films. It is a treasure. Not so this sequel. OH GOD was poetry in motion. Never a dull moment, never a bad scene, never a line of bad dialog. It is a film you could see over and over. OH GOD BOOK 2, which embarrasses itself right off the top by showing more writing credits than there are key positions on a football team, never once gets into gear.
All that saves the film from infamy is an astonishing performance by a young actress credited only as "Louanne. Oh God! Book II is not really a sequel to the first film, as you might think. While George Burns returns as God, the events of the first film are not referenced at all. This is more of a remake of the first film While not a turkey, this film is disappointing, compared to the first one which was excellent.
There are no new ideas that weren't used the first time, and for a "light-hearted" film, it is difficult to watch the persecution the child endures for standing up for God. Some of the supporting roles are interestingly cast, but these talented actors are given precious little to do. I can understand George Burns wanting to return to the role of God, since the first one was so successful for him, but he should have held out for a better script.
CarolineOP 7 April Few films inspire a faith and childhood as this one. The long and short of it: This is a soft reboot of 's 'Oh, God! I suggest you skip this movie and go straight to "Oh, God! You Devil! Of the creative people who brought us Oh God only George Burns returns for the sequel. Larry Gelbart's adopted script which got an Oscar nominations was a very profound statement on the human condition.
This one is a nice PG rated kids film with the Deity himself now using a little girl played by Louanne to spread His word with the good advertising training her father David Birney has given her. Starting with her schoolmates she gets them to graffiti the world with 'Think God' and the simple idea spreads. The best ideas are often the most simple ones. Her sanity is questioned and like John Denver in the original who went before a select group of theologians Louanne's very future at stake.
This is a pleasant remake of a real classic. Burns is as droll as ever. Suzanne Pleshette is fine as Louanne's mother. But it's just a pale imitation of the first. The first Oh, God! She makes cracks about her father's new love. So what does she do? She goes to God, and she creates "Think God". She gets her friends to help her spread the message out. But her parents, think she's out of touch with reality.
Even the psychiatrists think the same way. When they committed her to a ward, the children rebel against all the adults in the town. The school was closed by the children, and the principal has his back up against the wall. What does God do? Get her out. The best scene is where he rides the motorcycle with side car. And the police see Tracy in the side car. It's a very good movie to watch.Bad Omens god roll? All PC.
