Good Book/Movie (What Christian Culture Looks Like)
I had always heard bad things about Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe. That it was just sentimental propaganda written to help free slaves. Then I saw this excellent video version of the book, which, if true to the spirit of the original, turned out to be a profound story of Christian faith and endurance of suffering for the sake of Christ.

I still haven't read the book. But Phillip E. Johnson has and discusses its merits in Touchstone magazine.
