New Movie Called The Gospel!

Recommended Posts

Hello good people! Yolanda Adams, Fred Hammond, Donnie McCurklin, and Hezekiah Walker have a new movie that hits theatres on Oct. 7th, called. "The Gospel." Check out the trailer at www.gospelmovie.com.

Here is the plot summary:

A young singer turns his back on God and his father's church when tragedy strikes. He returns years later to find the once powerful congregation in disarray. With his childhood nemesis creating a "new vision" for the church, he is forced to deal with family turmoil, career suicide, and relationship issues that send him on a collision course with redemption or destruction.

Just saw it and loved it! Being both a preacher's kid and a preacher with sons I found the story line extremely authentic and the allusion to the biblical parables well done without being preachy. The music is great and the acting is very well done. The obvious reference to our need for Jesus is overt without being a visual sermon. I highly recommend it and will give it a 4 star rating!

Very interesting, especially noting that the director's previous work was a trilogy of erotic thrillers that even secular publications condemned as "soft porn."

Is the director reformed now?

Or merely selling a different kind of specific product to a built-in audience?

I don't mean that sarcastically... but I do approach the project with some apprehension, seeing the director's track record.

I don't know anything about Rob Hardy or his spiritual life. But if he wrote the dialogue (as both director and writer) then this could be a personal journey film. It is that authentic.

I did not find the film overly sensuous although it does have a scene showing the depth of the prodigal run - but it is appropriate within the storyline.

Once again, a film that plays primarily to black audiences (and black FEMALE audiences, to judge by the exit polls -- 85 percent of the weekend audience was black, and 70 percent was female) makes the Top Five at the "North American" box office but doesn't place in the Canadian Top Ten at ALL. Heck, it hasn't even OPENED in Vancouver yet, and for all I know it might not have opened anywhere else -- though I did get a press kit in the mail a few days before it opened in the States.

Interestingly, this film was produced and distributed by Screen Gems, the same studio that made The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Coincidence...?
