Here’s this week’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith and culture:
The faith-based film powerhouse Pure Flix is announcing an Easter weekend release for God’s Not Dead: A Light in the Darkness.
The third film of the financially-successful GND franchise filmed on location in Little Rock, Arkansas and stars David A.R. White and Shane Harper returning to their roles in the original film. New to the cast are John Corbett (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), Ted McGinley (Married with Children), Jennifer Taylor (Two and a Half Men) and Tatum O’Neal (Paper Moon).
GOD’S NOT DEAD: Pastor Dave (David A.R. White) faces tragedy when his church, located on the grounds of the local university, is burned down.
Literally adding insult to injury, his plan to rebuild faces an unexpected setback when university reject the idea on grounds 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 attorney brother Pearce (John Corbett) who is an atheist. As they work together, they 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.
