I sold seven copies of God’s Law and Society in about 12 hours today.
This was my first video project with Reel to Real Ministries in 1999. Sales of the video were brisk in those first few months. It filled a niche market for Christians interested in the idea of Revival and Reformation from a practical biblical law based paradigm. It also answered the many objections Christians have about applying biblical law to the civil realm.
However, I never expected it to be a best seller or earn me a full-time working wage. The plan for the long term is to keep producing similar media projects until there is a large enough product base and a clientéle that will enable me to do this on a full-time basis.
Six months ago, we finally remastered God’s Law and Society to DVD and lowered the price from $39.95 to a bargain price of $19.95. It’s two discs and over four hours of teaching. Still I usually sell a few copies of this DVD along with a similar title called The Beast of Revelation: Identified with Ken Gentry.
A good month will net a few hundred dollars of sales. This is without any advertising or promotion on my part except for the web presence of two e-commerce stores where I sell books and DVDs. The small profit earned goes back into ministry-oriented projects.
So the current success streak is gratifying. Yet this is also puzzling. I am getting some free advertising and promotion from someone somewhere. I have a couple of ideas on what the source may be, but I am not 100 percent certain. It could be a recent fundraising mailer I did to promote my upcoming missions trip to Ukraine in July. It could be an unsolicited plug from a theonomist blogger. It could be one or more of the YouTube videos clips from this project. If you can help solve the mystery it would be greatly appreciated.
In any case, there is no time like the peak of a success cycle to do some shameless self-promotion. So here is more information and here is how to order.
God’s Law and Society
Includes a free on-line Study Guide!
Ten parts, over four hours of instruction!
King David exulted in Psalm 119: “Oh, how I love Thy law! It is my meditation day and night!” Tragically, the testimony of most Christians today is: “How I ignore Thy law because I am under grace!” The result? An America where over 40 percent of the population (including the President) claim to be born-again, where babies are being sacrificed in the name of “choice,” homosexuality is protected, even celebrated, where good is called evil and evil good.
God’s Law and Society features 16 noted Christian leaders and scholars, each an expert in applying the Ten Commandments to American life!
This presentation gives biblically sound teaching in a four-hour series, divided into ten parts – a perfect format for group instruction as well as personal Bible study!

After 40 years of intense study and world-wide ministry, Dr. Francis Schaeffer completed his crowning work of scholarship – to present profound truths in simple film language. Dr. Schaeffer’s brilliant analysis of the past and predictions for current trends have proven so uncannily accurate that this amazing series still feels contemporary almost three decades after its initial release. Ultimately, Schaeffer concludes that man’s only hope is a return to God’s Biblical absolute, the truth revealed in Christ through the Scriptures.
Available for the first time on DVD, this documentary spectacular also includes intimate in-depth conversations with Francis and Edith Schaeffer. With the on-disc study guide, this presentation forms a unique course of comprehensive study. While this series forms an innovative analysis of the past, this outstanding work is more than history. Each episode focuses on a significant era, yet speaks clearly to 21st-century man with answers for modern problems.

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!
Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.
Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

Just what is Calvinism?
Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?
This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981
Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House. More recently, it was by catching just a glimpse of what this film reveals that Planned Parenthood director and abortion advocate Abby Johnson turned and became a strong advocate for the pre-born.
The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.
“…a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine
