Is Sarah Sanders Running for Arkansas Governor?
CBN News Steve Warren Aug. 27, 2019
Former White House press secretary and the daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee may be planning to run for the governor's seat in her home state of Arkansas.
On Monday, Sanders launched a new personal website which gave many political pundits enough evidence to wonder if she may be planning to enter the Arkansas gubernatorial race in 2022.
It's a polished website that features her biography, touting her relationship with her former boss President Donald Trump.  
Back in June, when Sanders left her job at the White House, Trump tweeted, "I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas - she would be fantastic."

After 3 1/2 years, our wonderful Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be leaving the White House at the end of the month and going home to the Great State of Arkansas....
....She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas - she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!

Sanders also tweeted about the website's launch. 

Visitors to Sanders' website are also invited to sign up for email updates.
Back in June, according to Politico, Sanders and her camp began making calls to donors and influential Republicans in the Natural State. 
But will she run? Just last month, Huckabee told talk radio host Hugh Hewitt that she doesn't know if she'll run, but confirmed her interest in the idea. 
Meanwhile, Sanders will begin her debut in her new job as a commentator on "Fox & Friends" on Sept. 6.

'Overcomer' Scores $8.2 Million at Box Office During Opening Weekend

The faith-based film "Overcomer" surpassed all expectations during its opening weekend with an impressive $8.2 million from just 1,723 screens across the country.
The latest project from Alex and Stephen Kendrick, "Overcomer" tells the story of high school basketball coach John Harrison. He and his team face an uncertain future when their town's largest manufacturing plant shuts down unexpectedly. 
As hundreds of people move away, John reluctantly agrees to coach cross-country, a sport he doesn't even like. His outlook soon changes when he meets Hannah Scott, an unlikely runner who pushes herself to the limit. Inspired by the words and prayers of a new friend, John starts to train Hannah for the biggest race of her young life.
"We are glad to have filmed this new feature in the charming and beautiful city of Columbus, Georgia. We felt so welcome and truly appreciate the many businesses, schools and loving pastors and churches who came alongside us to support our efforts," said Stephen Kendrick, the film's co-writer and producer. 
"Overcomer" also stars actress and evangelist Priscilla Shirer who plays a leading role as the school principal. 
"Those that have seen the film were really on the edge of seat with anticipation and excitement as they watch the story unfold," Shirer said. "There were twists and turns that they were not expecting and so that really did entertain them while they were watching the film," she added.
"When they walk away I've been hearing people really ask themselves the question, 'Who have I let define me and is my significance tucked away in illegitimate places like my success or in the approval of a certain group of people?'"
It's been nearly four years since the Kendrick brothers stunned Hollywood with their blockbuster faith-based film, "War Room," which grossed over $67 million following an $11.3 million debut in 2015.
Christian publisher LifeWay is also releasing multiple resources for adults and children as companion study guides to the movie.  The materials include Bible study kits with books geared toward small groups, adults, teenage boys and girls as well as middle schoolers.

Archaeologists Uncover Babylonian Destruction of Jerusalem Just How Bible Describes It
CBN News Emily Jones
JERUSALEM, Israel - Academics are saying the Bible is trustworthy after discovering evidence of the 6th century Babylonian siege of Jerusalem as it is described in 2 Kings, Chapter 25.
Archaeologists from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, excavating on Mount Zion in Jerusalem, say they have found physical evidence of the Babylonian attack, including burnt material, arrowheads, carbonized wood, bronze, iron, jewelry, and broken pottery.
Dr. Shimon Gibson, co-director of the university's Mount Zion archaeological project, told CBN News the discoveries were "unexpected."
The Bible describes King Nebuchadnezzar's forces burning "every great house" down, including the house of the Lord – Solomon's Temple. The soldiers also took bronze pillars and vessels from the Temple and carried them back to Babylon while the children of Israel were thrown into exile.
"What we're finding are the results of that destruction," Gibson said, adding that Nebuchadnezzar was known as the "Destroyer of Nations" at the time.
The researchers also found a particularly rare piece of jewelry with unclear origins.
"It might have been an earring. It might have been a tassel, some kind of ornament. It's unclear at this point in time. It consists of a golden bell out of which extends this bunch of grapes made out of silver," Gibson said.
While he cannot say conclusively that the archaeologists stumbled upon the remnants of the Babylonian attack, Gibson said it "lines up very well" with the Bible.
In fact, Gibson believes the discoveries prove the Bible to be a reliable and historically accurate document.
"There have been over the past several decades a lot of discussion as to the veracity of the biblical account. Some would like to see it more as mythically based, maybe having a basis in history, but still largely a document that is not really to be relied upon," he explained.
"Our excavations prove that to not be the case."
Gibson said the archaeologists will return to Jerusalem next summer to excavate the site in its entirety.
