Pure Flix’s latest theatrical film, God’s Not Dead: A Light In Darkness, is a reminder that in all circumstances, we are called to be a light for Jesus to a world in desperate need of hope.
Faith and family film studio Pure Flix continues their popular God’s Not Dead film series with God’s Not Dead: A Light In Darkness, which hits theaters March 30. Shot on location in Little Rock, Arkansas, the film stars David A.R. White (God’s Not Dead), John Corbett (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), Shane Harper (God’s Not Dead), Ted McGinley (Married with Children), Jennifer Taylor (Two and a Half Men), and Tatum O’Neal (Paper Moon).
In the film, a deadly fire rips through St. James Church, devastating the congregation and Pastor Dave. Adjoining Hadleigh University uses the tragedy to kick the congregation off campus. The escalating controversy creates a dilemma for the small church—can Christians fight for their rights and be the light for Christ at the same time?
Facing a court case and his own struggle to see Christ’s light in heartbreak, Dave asks for help from Pearce, his estranged brother—a big-city lawyer and an atheist—to fight for the church’s right to exist. The family reunion opens old wounds, as the brothers wrestle with the questions that pulled them apart years ago: Is God really good all the time? Where is God when bad things happen? Can Christ really heal the brokenhearted?
“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, released in 2014, earned $62 million against a budget of $1.2 million. It is one of the most profitable movies by percentage in cinema history.
