Father of Lights: Review & Giveaway

*** Giveaway Now Closed ***
Congratulations to tarter95!


I have a new movie to tell you about, Father of Lights.  David and I watched this a few nights ago and we both really enjoyed it.  This film took a real honest approach, asking some simple questions and documenting their experiences with God.  I appreciated that they told the story without lots of razzle-dazzle effects or dramatic emphasis; what you get is a candid presentation of the supernatural.  The opening sequence of abstract images was over the top for my taste, but it has nothing to do with the actual documentary.

I found it encouraging to get to see some of their experiences in places like India, San Francisco and Israel.  Of course, Wilson is preaching to the choir here; I have been overseas in the developing world myself, and I know God to be a loving father who gives good gifts to His children.  It would be interesting to watch this film with someone who has a different worldview.

About Father of Lights
FATHER OF LIGHTS chronicles the journey of filmmaker Darren Wilson and his team as they fearlessly travel the globe, far from the daily existence of the typical evangelical believer in the West. By thoughtfully documenting the stories of extraordinary believers and candidly filming miracles, visions and other supernatural occurrences, Wilson engages viewers in modern day examples of the true nature and character of God.  

Wilson gives honest access to his own spiritual questions as he tackles the religious misconceptions he has struggled with throughout his life.  “I went into making this film by asking the simple question: who is God? I wanted to know His character, His personality, and who He truly is. To answer this question, we had to peel back the many layers of religious garbage that has been passed onto him through generations. That He is angry. Vengeful. Wrathful. And in general, that He doesn’t like you very much. The truth, as you will see vibrantly in this film, is that He is the most loving, compassionate, and wonderful Father you can imagine.”
