AUTHOR BIOS:
Roma Downey - A multiple Golden Globe and Emmy nominated actress, Roma starred for almost a decade as the angel "Monica" in the hit CBS television series, Touched By An Angel. She is also producer of the children's DVD and book series "Little Angels" and its companion Little Angels Storybook Bible
Mark Burnett - Multiple Emmy Award winning producer of some of the biggest prime time network television shows in history including Survivor, The Apprentice, Shark Tank and The Voice. Has produced over 2,000 hours of American prime time programming airing in over 70 countries.
This husband and wife duo recently collaborated for their most ambitious project to date: producing together a ten hour global television mini-series titled The Bible.


REVIEW:
All too often nowadays, people seem to have forgotten why we celebrate certain holidays. Christmas has become about who got who the best and most extravagant gift. Easter seems to be about bunnies and chocolate. What about Jesus though? 
This wonderful book is a companion to the film, The Bible. It is a beautiful and very deep way of remembering what Easter is all about. No matter how many times I see or read about the resurrection of Christ, it always moves me to tears. I also end up feeling humbled, loved, sad, angry, empathy and compassion. 
Yes, we eat meals with our families and break bread as Jesus did, but try to remember his sacrifice for us all. Maybe less emphasis on the egg hunt and chocolate and more focus on the reason for the season, Jesus.

So what makes Emily Coleman get up one morning and walk right out of her life—to start again as someone new? Now, Emily has become Cat, working at a hip advertising agency in London and living on the edge with her inseparable new friend, Angel.

Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother with a mission when she is determined on Breaking In. Producers Will Packer (No Good Deed, Obsessed) and Union (Almost Christmas, Being Mary Jane) reunite for this original thriller directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Sense8).

REVIEW: So much better than I anticipated. One fierce, strong and smart mom comes to the rescue of her whole family. These guys who took her kids, don't stand a chance. She's not a MMA fighter or anything, but she is smart and resourceful. I was so in tune with the film, and as a mom, I was on the edge-of-my-set waiting for her to give them what they deserved. No one should take a womans' kids.  Men and women will both love this movie, so  maybe a date nigh…
