The Oath

Best-selling novelist Frank Peretti’s “The Oath” comes to life on stage Halloween weekend at Grace Church of the Nazarene, 2620 Pennington Bend Road in Nashville.

As You Like It: Shakespeare In The Park

A man of the world who, notoriously or not, was one of the translators of the Bible for King James is the subject here. In most of his plays that have transcended the ages almost as well as Bible literature, he uses scripture passages very often biblical themes, and varying degrees of Christian characters. William Shakespeare knew Scripture well enough to finesse it into his playwriting. He had a grand sweeping view relating wide experiences of life. His sonnets reveal…
