About God’s Not Dead: A Light In Darkness
GOD’S NOT DEAD: A LIGHT IN DARKNESS is an inspirational drama that centers on Pastor Dave (David A.R. White) and the unimaginable tragedy he endures when his church, located on the grounds of the local university, is burned down. But his dreams of rebuilding the church face an unexpected setback when university officials reject his plans to rebuild, determining that the church is no longer relevant in today’s society.
Trusting in the motto that he has lived by that “God is good all the time,” Pastor Dave enlists the legal help of his estranged brother Pearce (John Corbett), who is an attorney but also an atheist. As they partner together for a united cause, the brothers come to understand that not every victory requires defeating the opposition, and there is a greater win when you heal and rebuild with compassion and respect for others.
“Audiences have continued to show support and interest in the GOD’S NOT DEAD films and their relatable characters who endure similar challenges in their personal faith and lives,” says Michael Scott, Pure Flix founding partner. “Our hope is that these films offer entertainment and encouragement, with a starting point for sharing faith in a respectable and compassionate manner.”
GOD’S NOT DEAD: A LIGHT IN DARKNESS is the latest addition in the film franchise, which started with GOD’S NOT DEAD, the highest-grossing independent faith film of 2014, taking in more than $60 million at the box office.
GOD’S NOT DEAD: A LIGHT IN DARKNESS is Directed by Michael Mason and Produced by David A.R. White, Michael Scott, Brittany Yost, Elizabeth Travis, and Alysoun Wolfe, and Executive Produced by Troy Duhon and Robert Katz.
Mom Maven’s Thoughts on God’s Not Dead: A Light in Darkness
Ron and I had the privilege of previewing GOD’S NOT DEAD: A LIGHT IN DARKNESS last month with other media and Christian leaders. The movie was introduced by Pastor Rice Brooks, the author of the book “God’s Not Dead”, on which the original movie was based. He told us that the third movie was about Truth. This confused us a bit because that is what GOD’S NOT DEAD 2 was about.
For us this third movie never hit that mark. We are huge supporters and fans of the first two movies in this franchise but number three is lacking. We felt this movie focused more on the fact that pastors are human and are, of course, not perfect, than the fact that all Christians should be a light in darkness. Pastor Dave’s character spent a lot of the movie angry and that anger led him to do somethings he shouldn’t have done. At the very end everything is tied up in a nice neat bow and we all know that only happens in the movies.
I hope you go check out this movie for yourself and let me know what you thought about it.
