"Over against all that reason suggests or would measure and fathom, yes, all that our senses feel and perceive, we must learn to cling to the Word and simply judge according to it."

Luther's Rose


I wish most importantly to state a case for Christ and His Cross for the unbeliever, but I also wish to make the case for both the unbeliever and the "blessedly inconsistent" towards the true apostolic and catholic teachings of the blessed and orthodox Lutheran Church.

The Pacific: The Trailer

For anyone who has seen and enjoyed the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers like myself, be prepared for the next series, The Pacific.

It is produced by the same duo who produced BoB, two relatively unknown guys...I think the ones name is...ah...Tom Hanks and the other is...oh, what's his name...Spa...Spi-...oh yeah Steven Spielberg.

Obviously this is set in the time frame of the Pacific Theater of WWII, and a companion piece, of sorts, to BoB.

I hope it is as good as BoB, which, in my opinion, was one of the best things produced on TV.

Here is the trailer.

Thanks for the heads-up, Drew.
Looks good!
I spent my formative years in the Australian city of Brisbane, which was Douglas MacArthur's South West Pacific HQ from mid-1942. MacArthur was also in charge of Australian troops in this theatre, including my grandfather!

I loved Band of Brothers, and if this is of the same caliber, that is production wise, then it stands to be as good.

To "piggy-back" on something you said, I spent my formative years listening to my grandfathers harrowing tales of adventure and dangerous times in Italy during WWII. He was a B-24 bomber pilot.

It seems there is much to be heard about the European theatre in popular media, but very little about the Pacific. After all we faced a more dangerous enemy, and quite frankly a harder battle against the Japanese. That fact may be just the reason why it isn't heralded from the rooftops as much as what happened in Europe.

Anyway, it will be interesting to see this series. Hopefully it will be as good as Band of Brothers.

Thanks for reading my blog; yours is an interesting read as well.

God Bless!
