    Oversold - A Modernisation of Hosea

    Peter Chattaway and I are trading Bible film newsbites today. He's just picked up my pieces on The Passover Plot and the MoBiA exhibition, but also added details about Oversold, a modernised take on the book of Hosea. It's been produced by sumoJACK and Elevation Church in Phoenix and recasts the story of Hosea and his prostitute wife Gomer. This is the first film about Hosea I've come across, so I'm looking forward to it.

    I hope to review the 32 minute film, which stars Crissy Moran, Stephen Zimpel and Grant Henderson, in the next week or two, but those wanting to find out more might like to try the official website. In addition to viewing the film's trailer, you can also download the film for just $5, see a host of production photos, watch an interview with Moran, or buy the DVD.

    There's also an interview with Moran, director Paul Morrell and writer / pastor of Elevation Dave Cowan over at Christianity Today.
