The Beatles, God, and the Bible Product Description
Not too many people know that John Lennon met Paul McCartney while at a church function, or that John was a choirboy. Nor do they know that at the height of their fame in 1965, all four Beatles professed to be atheists. Yet in 1980, John had moved from proudly stating that they were more popular than Jesus, to humbly saying: "I'm a most religious fellow . . . I was brought up a Christian, and I only now understand some of the things that Christ was saying in those parables." As a young man, George Harrison wrote, "I want to find God. I'm not interested in material things, this world, fame—I'm going for the real goal." Later in life, Ringo said, "For me, God is in my life. I don't hide from that." In the 1990s, Paul said, "I'm not religious, but I'm very spiritual." He prayed for his wife when she was having trouble giving birth to their daughter, and his 2001 song "Freedom" spoke of freedom as "a right given by God." He also said, "God wouldn't have given us tears if He didn't want us to cry."
Little has been said of the spiritual side of the world's most famous music group. "The Beatles, God, and the Bible" changes that with its unique and fascinating insight into the spirituality of the Fab Four.
Foreword by Ken Mansfield, executive at Capitol Records and the first U.S. manager of the Beatles' Apple Records.

Genius Product Description
Genius is a new and chilling movie on the life and tragic murder of John Lennon. The producer, Los Angeles-based best-selling author, Ray Comfort said, “It’s chilling because it reveals what people will do for money. There are ordinary people out there who would kill you. All they need is the right money and the belief that they won’t get caught.”
Just before he was murdered, John Lennon told Playboy magazine that he didn't want to die at 40. Ironically the famous singer was gunned down at the age of 40 by a man who killed him just because he wanted to become famous.
Comfort said, “John Lennon was a musical genius. All I have to do is think of some of his songs and even the titles make me feel good…and I’m not the only one. His music has crossed cultures and even generations. The Beatles have sold more than 2,303,500,000 record albums, and in June of 2012 they hit number one on iTunes. They are as big now as they ever were and they’re half dead--with the tragic loss of Lennon and Harrison.”
Ken Mansfield, the former U.S. Manager for Apple Records said, “Genius will open your eyes.” Other reviewers have called it “fast-paced, thought-provoking and compelling.” It is being called “33 minutes that will rock your soul.” Comfort’s last movie, simply called “180” received more than 3.7 million views on YouTube. Genius will be released for free viewing on GeniusTheMovie.com on December 8th, the anniversary of the death of John Lennon.
Comfort added, “Abraham Lincoln said, ‘Towering genius disdains a beaten path. It seeks regions hitherto unexplored.’ That’s what John Lennon did. He pushed the musical envelope of creativity.”
The Beatles have sold more than 2,303,500,000 record albums, and in June of 2012 they hit number one on iTunes.
Every year since 2005, John Lennon's "Imagine" has been played just before the New Year's ball drop in Times Square.
"Imagine" was played at the 1996 and the 2004 Olympics, and the 2006 Winter Olympics' opening ceremony.
