God’s Not Dead – A light in darkness

Pure Flix, the leading independent faith and family film studio, has announced that God’s Not Dead: a light in darkness, is scheduled to release in Canadian theatres this coming Easter on March 30, 2018.

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 stars David A.R. White (God’s Not Dead), Emmy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee 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 Academy Award® winner Tatum O’Neal (Paper Moon). The film 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.
