    Jesus For a Changing Generation

    The musical was conceived in the early 70s by Andrew Lloyd Webber.   The world at that time was a very different place, Vietnam was ending, things were changing.  Old bible stories and hymns wouldn't work for this generation - they needed something they could...

    Rethinking Judas

      I remember hearing the music when I was a teen. My parents had the album, and I would sit and listen to it for hours.   Then the movie came out, and we went as a family to see it like we had seen so many other movies. I enjoyed it, and it made me listen to...
