This past weekend at the National Religious Broadcasters event in Nashville, I had the pleasure of meeting with a wide array of Christian leaders, executives and creatives, all looking to help spread the Good News.
Among those I met with were two very good friends, Mark Burnett and his wife, Roma Downey, who we’ve had the opportunity to work with on various occasions. These committed Christians were behind last year’s hit miniseries, “The Bible,” which helped make faith part of the national conversation and compelled many people to dust off their Bibles and read them again.
The Hollywood power couple is back with a new offering. “Son of God” is a movie about the life of Jesus, covering everything from His humble birth, ministry, crucifixion and resurrection in an action-epic format.
“Son of God” will debut tomorrow in theaters nationwide.
Some Christian leaders, including Pastor Rick Warren, are using “theater buyouts” to help draw people to see the film in an attempt to evangelize. Many churches are actively promoting the film, hoping that, like “The Bible” miniseries that preceded it, people will once again be prompted to talk about faith, Jesus Christ and salvation.
I’ll leave you with a trailer to the movie below. For those of you visiting the blog from a mobile device, you can watch the trailer via this link.
