Episode  Summary:

Wintery Knight and Desert Rose discuss classical movies that offer wisdom for practical Christian living. The first movie is a war movie that offers insight to Christians about our motivation for serving the Lord at a time when serving is no longer easy or popular. The second movie is a classical romance movie, which offers a superb portrait of classical masculinity in action. The third movie is an adventure / romance movie that challenges us to put our duty to higher causes above our own suffering and disappointment.

Desert Rose did her undergraduate degree in public policy, and then worked for a conservative Washington lobbyist organization. She also has a graduate degree from a prestigious evangelical seminary. She is active in Christian apologetics as a speaker, author, and teacher.


At one point in his summarizing of the first movie, WK says “Childers” when he means “Hodges”. Hodges takes half of the marines through a marsh on the low ground, and gets ambushed. Childers takes the other half of the marines up on the high ground, and finds the commander who is controlling the ambush.
