Take Your Pick 7/9/10

# 1 One of The Master’s College’s favorite professors wrote a book– Meaning at the Movies. Dr. Grant Horner is a hilarious teacher, a great story-teller, a brilliant thinker, and an excellent rock climber.

If you’re going to read Grant Horner’s new book on film art, Meaning at the Movies, he strongly suggests that you watch certain films before reading the chapter in which they are discussed.

# 4 This video is great– it discusses the “Secret Powers of Time” and how our “time perspective” affects our lifestyle. It also explains dilemma of our instant gratification culture.
