The 10 contributors show that a proper understanding of the Bible involves believing that God is indeed sovereign, yet also loving, just and good.
John Piper's helpful chapter asks the question "Are there 2 wills in God?" And then seeks to show that God does indeed "fulfil all his will" and yet "is not willing that any should perish."
S.M. Baugh discusses the meaning of "foreknowledge" in the Bible, and argues persuasively that God's foreknowledge must mean a lot more than knowing what is going to happen in the future.
Jerry Bridges shows that a belief in the sovereignty of God has practical implications for everyday living, while Samuel Storms explains how it is worth praying to a God who has already decreed "the end from the beginning." In fact, he argues that there is not much point in praying to a God who is not in complete control of his world.
This book has been one of the most helpful explanations of Calvinism which I have read. Highly recommended.

There are several photos throughout the book - publicity stills, behind the scenes pics, and a few casual shots. There is an interesting photo of Legosi playing Jesus, and he really looked the part. Beck does provide much about the lives of the actors and some of their views on acting. There is a complete filmography for each actor.
The binding does not seem to hold up well under repeated use. I'm not sure how a copy that is simply old might be. I read and studied the photos several times.
The fact that this particular book is out of print is a crime. While the Horror film may not be the most resepected genre, it certainly deserves better than this. Calvin Beck's book is a great resource for anyone looking into this neglected part of film history. His prose is straightforward and accurate. Reading this book is a must for anyone researching these actors.

Thomas' book is a thrilling trip into the sometimes silly, often destructive and dangerous masculine mindset. I strongly recommend this text for men who are willing to explore their own discomfort with honesty and confront the fears and fictions they've created for themselves.
