    Buried Treasure of the Week: YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES

    in Film

    1985's YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES was a heart-breaker for all involved. Produced by Steven Spielberg and Henry Winkler (yes, THAT one!), written by GREMLINS, THE GOONIES' Chris Columbus (who'd later direct the first two HARRY POTTERs), and helmed by Barry Levinson (RAIN MAN, THE NATURAL), it was a loose but loving adventure which speculated Holmes & Watson meeting as boarding school students who team to solve a series of terrifying murders on campus. Not a box office success at the time, it has since become a fan favorite which would also launch the filmic careers of the directors of BLADE and TOY STORY; and even serve as structural inspiration for J.K. Rowling's HARRY POTTER yarns. Includes film audio clips, as well as excerpts from Bruce Broughton's classic score, and archival interview commentary by Pixar / Disney Studio head John Lasseter - at the time responsible for the film's legendary signature FX sequence (one of the first via CGI) - the come-to-life "Stained Glass Warrior Knight".

    Sherlock Holmes and Bible Study, 10 Tips

    in Religion

    What can a fictional detective teach you about how to study the Bible?
    A lot.
    You probably would expect Holmes to take the most sophisticated approach to solving mysteries. But, when you read the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes you are actually stuck by the simple and basic approach that he takes. And his approach actually applies directly to studying the Bible.
    Eric McKiddie is one of the pastors at College Church in Wheaton, IL. He recently blogged about  10 quotes from Holmes that will equip you to solve mysterious passages of the Bible.
    As a Precept Bible study leader you would not agree with everything Eric shares about Sherlock Holmes and Bible study, but his points are interesting and we think some of them might help you look at your inductive Bible study techniques in a different light.
    Join David Lawson today as he discusses Eric McKiddie’s 10 Tips on Solving Mysterious Bible Passages from Sherlock Holmes.

    Maria Konnikova: How to think like Sherlock Holmes

    in Psychology

    Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science.

    This is a "Best Of" replay because my new book just came out. This is a fascinating show on the difference between seeing and actually observing, and many of the other habits and practices of Sherlock Holmes. 

    Science writer and psychologist Dr. Maria Konnikova draws on 21st century neuroscience and psychology to show how we can employ Holmes’ thought processes to unlock our own capacities for ever-present mindfulness, astute observation, and logical deduction in order to see more, live more rationally, and, in turn live smarter. 

    Her book we discuss: Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes
